Well... There is a nasty tendency to needed one laptop per instrument
to avoid ground-loops and that means laptops with batteries that can
hold up for how ever long your measurement is going to take.
Better quality USB instruments, like Agilents Power Sensors do not
seem to suffer from this, but much of the low-class stuff does.
