Description Of Issue

Could i use this laptop for roon core if i updated it to windows 10, 8gb of ram and an ssd hardrive? Or would the clock speed be too slow?

Hi,

Unfortunately it’s way too slow … see RKB - FAQ: What are the minimum requirements? and

Have you considered using a NUC?

Hi @Alexander_Baker-Roge,

As Carl suggested, the CPU doesn’t meet our requirements, so there’s definitely a chance that this machine, even with those upgrades, would experience performance issues.
