OpCom and an old XP laptop will tell you the same thing as a Tech 2. The advantage of the Tech 2 is that it allows you to program and join / disjoin electrical components. OpCom can be found an FleaBay for about $30. An old XP laptop is probably $100 for one that works. That's still less than half the cost of even the least expensive knock-off Tech 2s from China.
There is lots of info on this board about OpCom. I lived with it for seven years before finally succumbing to the purchase of a Tech2.
I have a Dell Inspiron MINI 10" XP notebook with OpCom and the WIS. The combination works great. I always take it on road trips because it's so compact.
