Question about Computers & Internet
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.0 GHz or AMD Athlon XP 2400+ (or faster)
Operating System: Windows XP Professional 32 bit platform Edition
Windows Vista 32 bit platform Edition
RAM: 1024 MB or more
Security Device: 25-pin printer port (parallel port) or USB port
Video Card: 32-bit Video card - 128MB of RAM (3D OpenGL accelerator and DirectX compatible)
Hard Drive: 3GB or more free disk space
DVD-ROM Drive: DVD, CD: 24X or more
PLEASE NOTE: All current 20-20 Technologies' software do not function with the Windows
XP 64 bit & Vista 64 bit platform.
We are currently testing our different applications on the 64 bit platform and therefore do not recommend using it at this time.
¬ Ensure with hardware supplier that the RAM and hard drive can be easily upgraded if required
¬ Two types of security device are available for our software, Parallel or USB
¬ 20-20 does not support any external device plugged onto the same LPT port as the security device. (i.e.: external zip drive or floppy drive)
¬ Certain printers may require additional RAM and/or disk space
¬ We recommend an independent video card. Please avoid built in video card (chipset) Please adjust your screen resolution at 1024x768 or higher.
You likely can get a better deal on the internet than BestBuy, and free shipping may be available, and you will pay no sales tax if you purchase out-of state (they will inform you). To find out what the computer requirements of the program you desire to use, try to find the "minimum requirements" which will be somewhere in your installation CD, but really should be on the box it came in. If not on the box, it should be in the instruction manual. A word of warning: "minimal" does not mean "optimal". Optimal means that you will be able to run the program without it being so slow that you want to tear your hair out. Design programs, I would assume, require decent graphics. A good graphics card is cheap in a desktop, but may be pricier in a laptop. However, the rage for great graphics capabilities for kids whose life consists of videogames has provided us with remarkably inexpensive laptops with great graphics capabilities. The prices keep falling: what was 1600 a year ago can now be found for $650. Since you do not require all the glop which comes with Vista, (the product still isn't ready for non-geeks, and requires enormous amounts of memory and a good Dual-core processor, I would highly recommend getting XP as your operating system, or else a Mac, which most graphics freaks prefer. Unfortunately, it's very hard to get a new laptop with XP. SO. What does the program say are its minimal requirements?
