Looking to buy a dedicated mini-PC to run BruControl. Any minimum requirements I need to be aware of to run this?

No - would suggest at least a Windows 10 machine with 8GB, 128GB+ HD/SSD, Celeron or better processor. BruControl won't tax the computer until you start to add a lot of graphical controls, then it will slow a bit.

Sounds good. So something like this is OK? Can attach HDD. 4gb ram won't do it?

This one has an Atom CPU. It will run, but again if you want to use graphics controls like LED's, analog meters, etc., it will be slowly responsive. I would target a Celeron or better CPU... likely closer to $200. Consider a used PC if budget constrained as you can find icore CPU based units for low price. A couple of years old but very capable. Spend your $ on a big touch screen!

Thanks Peter. For others who find this post, I ended up ordering this one (on sale for $159) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B088TNXZ4D/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
