Computer Requirements

If you wish to use a computer other than those recommended in the Computer Recommendations article, please make sure it meets the following system requirements. The most important requirement is a modern quad-core processor. Do not buy or use a laptop with a dual-core processor.

Recommended System Requirements

  • Windows or macOS operating system
  • A multi-core score of 2000 or higher on the Geekbench 5 test is strongly recommended. Computers typically require a quad-core processor to achieve this performance score.
  • 16 GB RAM
  • 802.11ac 3x3 wireless networking
  • Centered webcam: it’s best to have the webcam located at the center above the display
  • Headset with a microphone: we recommend a sound-isolating headset such as the Sennheiser SC60, which provides superior sound and picks up your voice accurately
  • SSD hard drive with at least 256 GB capacity
  • 5 or more hours of battery life
  • Weight: You will likely find yourself carrying your laptop a lot, so be conscious of the weight.

Minimum System Requirements

  • Windows or macOS operating system
  • A multi-core score of 1650 or higher on the Geekbench 5 test
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 802.11ac wireless networking
  • A working webcam
  • Headphones with a microphone

Any computer system used to access Forum must meet the Minimum System Requirements. Note that the minimum requirements might provide suboptimal experience compared to the recommended system specifications.
