You can use any laptop.

You will need to buy a SerialLink.  That will give the ECU a serial port.  If your laptop has a serial port then plug it into that and go.

If the laptop has only USB, then you will need to get a USB-serial adpater from a computer store.  That effictively gives your laptop a serial port.

Download PCLink V2.5 (NOT V3.3) from the website and you will be ready to go.

Is your ECU a LinkPlus?  To do PC tuning it should have the numbers V4, V5, V10 or V14 on or inside it...
