Tethering solution

I currently tether my D850 and other cameras to a 2015 vintage 27" iMac in the studio.  I use Lightroom and a Tether Tools cable.  It works great.

I'm looking at some jobs outside where I would like to also tether to a larger screen, even an iPad would be satisfactory as I don't intend to do any editing, but I ONLY want to do it WIRED.  No wireless solutions.

I guess that means purchasing a laptop which will not be used for ANYTHING except tethering to view the images.  No editing.  I'll probably use one of my external drives for storage.

I'm not well versed in computer specifications and since this is a fairly small use case I don't want to spend the money on a new Apple laptop if I can avoid it.  I would even be willing to use a Windows machine since I don't need it for anything else.

Could anyone suggest what I should be looking at in terms of getting out with the cheapest laptop which is still responsive enough to be useful for this application.  Specific recommendations would also be useful.  Used might even be a viable option.

Thanx in advance.
