    Any moderate notebook pc would be fine, as long as its supports OpenGL, and they pretty much all do. I would customize with the best graphics card you can afford.

    I recommend "OpenCL in Action" by Matthew Scarpino. It's a nice reference, thorough and well-written for a tough technical subject.

    Today most of the operating system such linux,windows,mac have extended their support for openCL in their latest releases.
    Power of openCL lies in its capability to use devices such as graphics card for non-graphical computing. Therefore a graphic card is needed to utilise the full capability of opencL. Graphics cards of AMD, INTEL, NVIDIA support opencl. To get a detail list of products which are compatible with openCL ,visit this link http://www.khronos.org/conformance/a...mant-products/.

    Also see this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenCL (section OpenCL-conformant products)
