    Any PC that supports Wake-On-LAN will work. We've been testing it with laptops, desktops, and netbooks.

    @M3Sharif,

    Moments ago I left a message on your site (Matt). Am I missing the pricetag somewhere?

    Thanks M3Sharif.

    I'm curious if you have a 'range' ... a week... 3 months... ?

    Thanks.

    Do you think you will ever have version compatible with mac? As I understand it, os x and the mac hardware fully support Magic Packets and WOL, Im curious though how you could set up the device without the APi. This would be very handy feature for my setup.

    Hi Lachie,

    Currently we don't have plans on supporting MAC OS.

    What we are working on is a future Firmware Update that will allow you to connect miniSparkô to a Windows PC for configuration, save that to Flash Memory so it can survive a Power Cycle then connect it to a MAC without an Application installed.

    The drawback, of course, would be that you can not modify the configuration without reconnecting a Windows PC. Also miniSparkô would only be Waking the system and could not shut it down without the applciation installed on the MAC.

    We are also considering Open Sourcing our API so that developers can create their own MAC Application in the future.

    Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any other questions.
