For Subaru Outback Legacy 1997

From another thread these appear to be the most functional and well priced:

So far I found this:

and this:

Any reason I should get the second one which is bit more expensive?

Any others I should look at?

I am planning to use a windows XP laptop for the job

well, if you want a KICK @SS one, it'll cost ya ($1500) but Mac Tools carries a Mac-Branded versiion of the OTC Genesys tool, which will not only work with OBDII, but also OBD-I cars as well. As for a just a code reader, those run about $300, but having used oen of the higher end scan tools, they are sooo much better!
