“I have decided to host with Zoom, so I want to
buy a new computer!” I received such an inquiry.
If you want to take full advantage of Zoom’s features, we recommend this computer.
Since Zoom exchanges videos on the Internet in real-time, it requires a certain level of computer performance.
And Zoom is constantly evolving its features.
It is unavoidable that the required performance of the personal computer will increase accordingly.
If you are still using Windows 7, consider buying a new computer.
For the time being, it is written that Zoom is also compatible with Windows 7, but in the first place, the reality is that the performance of PCs running Windows 7 is too poor to handle Zoom.
So what kind of computer would you like to buy a new one to host a meeting or seminar at Zoom?
With the version upgrade on May 19, 2019, Zoom has enhanced the function called virtual background that replaces the background with another image.
This allows you to enjoy a beautiful virtual background even if the background is not a single color.
A computer that can use this new virtual background must meet the following conditions.
OS: Windows10 64bit CPU: Core i7 Quad-core or above
* For Mac, specifications equal to or higher than this are required.
When you buy a computer, its performance is displayed.
Here, looking at the column called CPU, it is written as follows.
Core i7 8550U 1.8GHz / 4 core
There are Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, etc., but the new virtual background is available on Core i7 and above.
Also, the ” 4 cores ” written here are quad cores.
Also, from here, it will be the daily operation speed rather than Zoom, but if you want a computer that runs smoothly, please select the one equipped with SSD.
There are hard disks (HDD) and SSDs as places to store data on personal computers, and SSDs can read and write at 10 times the speed of hard disks.
Compared to a computer with only a hard disk, an SSD-equipped computer takes significantly less time from turning on the computer to completing booting.
I want to edit videos, and I want to save the edited videos!
In such a case, if you select a personal computer with 16GB of memory, 512GB of SSD, and 1TB of hard disk, you can use it without any shortage.
