That is true. Although you could use your powerful machine for astro, and use the HP Stream for the do banking/finance. Or get a cheap device for the banking stuff. Assuming some gear re-use (monitor, etc), you could probably setup a non-Windows system for less than $100 (e.g. a RPi) - 5% the cost of the ZWO camera.

Unless the issue is related to USB3 also...
