Re: Zoom Machine...

So, this is a bigger question really than belongs in a forum post but in terms of actual applicability in real life, in the experience of the masses what’s the minimum vintage to aim at if you assume these things are necessary:

Chrome/Firefox run like not a dog

Support for audio, HD playback and Webcam

Zoom, Teams, Skype

Libreoffice

That’s really it I think, add on not-terrible printer support but that’s likely not affected by the hardware only the distribution it’s capable of running.

What’s the lowest cost solution do we all think?
