Zoom and PC performance

This time we will talk about Zoom and PC performance.

Since I was a system administrator, which computer is personally recommended by employees who are trying to buy a computer?

I often received consultations.

From experience, the tendency becomes stronger as you get older, if you buy a high price .

The idea.

So, when I asked what it was actually used for, I was told that it was weather, YouTube, and solitaire (a game in which playing cards are layered in numerical order). Lol

Solitaire seems to have been included in Windows 3 (released in 1990) …

In fact, although most of those who come to consult is Me Not explosive specs, I said Chan’e guy I think I’m going to buy.

Some people dare to buy over-engineering to raise their tension.

I think that’s fine.

However, many of you who read this article will want to save money if you can because it cost money to start a business.

For those people, we will tell you the criteria for choosing the PC you need to do business with Zoom.

Let’s know the minimum operating specifications of Zoom


The nice thing about Zoom is that it works on most of the PCs on the market today.

If you write in detail, it corresponds to the following about OS. (As of October 1, 2019)

  • Mac OS X with MacOS 10.7 or later
  • Windows 10
  • Windows 8 or 8.1
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista with SP1 or later
  • Windows XP with SP3 or later
  • Ubuntu 12.04 or later
  • Mint 17.1 or later
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 or later
  • Oracle Linux 6.4 or later
  • CentOS 6.4 or later
  • Fedora 21 or later
  • OpenSUSE 13.2 or later
  • ArchLinux (64-bit only)

I think you don’t have to worry about the lower half.

What should be noted here is that the lowest line of major OS is “Mac OS X with Mac OS 10.7 or later” and “Windows XP with SP3 or later”.

The point is that it supports everything that is available on the PCs that are available now .

The specifications of the PC are as follows.

This is not the lowest, but buy more than the recommended specs.

I think most current terminals have Windows 10.

In that case, it would be better to have R AM (memory) 4Gb for the operation of the terminal .

In addition, other things you need are like this.

  • Internet connection-wired or wireless broadband (3G or 4G / LTE)
  • Speakers and Microphones-Built-in, USB Plugin, or Wireless Bluetooth
  • Webcam or HD webcam-Built-in or USB plug-in
    or HD cam or HD camcorder with video capture card

It’s natural because it’s an internet environment, a microphone, a speaker, and a webcam.

Keep security as long as you connect to the Internet


You can see again that the specs required for Zoom to work are not very high.

But the important thing here.

If you connect to the Internet, install at least security software.

In other words, be sure to include antivirus software among security software.

When you start a business, you may also operate your bank account on that terminal.

It’s late after infection, so it’s better to put it in at the same time as setting the first startup.

So, what should be noted here is that the minimum specifications of security software are higher than the minimum operating environment of Zoom.

I got an old one, but I want to make sure that the security software doesn’t work.


By the way, I’m using McAfee’s LiveSafe software.

In addition to protecting an unlimited number of PCs, it can also cover smartphones and tablets.

It’s a little bit when you buy security software, but we recommend that you update it manually instead of updating it automatically.

The reason is that it is much easier to buy a new license by yourself.

It will take more time, but in some cases it will be less than half the price of automatic renewal, so let’s reduce wasted money in such places.

When choosing an OS, think about what you want to do besides Zoom


Is the OS of the PC to be purchased Windows or Mac?

A good number of people who came to me will be happy to ask me what about a Mac.

Thanks to the iPhone, the Mac has a strong image of being a stylish personal computer, so I’m trying to get into it from the shape.

I want you to give me the last push.

Of course, if you just want to Zoom, you can use a Mac.

But what matters is what you want to do besides Zoom.

Windows still supports many types of third-party software.

Even programs from major services are often not supported on Macs or have limited functionality.

Even with the same Apple, the iPhone app is the first to support it, but the minority Mac is behind the PC OS.

Therefore, even if you bought a Mac, you may end up with a device that you can’t do what you want to do, so be careful.

If you want to make it a Mac, you may not be able to do what you weren’t aware of before if you were using Windows.

I want to be aware of that and check in advance if it works before buying.

There is also a way to put Windows on your Mac so that you can use both, but I will omit it here.

Choose a PC that suits your work


For example, let’s say you mainly use Zoom, write sentences, record Zoom, and then edit it.

* Software for blogs, sentences, table creation, etc. does not require much specifications, so it is omitted.

For video editing itself, even if you use movie editing software that comes with each OS for free, you can make something good as it is, so let’s use this.

This is not the minimum spec for such software, but it is better to have 8Gb or more of memory .

And important things for editing videos.

That is the storage capacity.

Currently, it can be divided into two types, HDD and SSD, but each has its advantages and disadvantages.

HDD has a large capacity, and although the unit price per capacity is low, it is vulnerable to shocks and writing is a little slow.

SSD does not have a large capacity, and although the unit price per capacity is high, it is relatively strong against impact and writes quickly.

Zoom is easy to take out and broadcast, so it goes great with laptops.

With that in mind, we recommend a laptop with an SSD .

Assuming that you are editing a video like this time, the more storage capacity you have, the better, and I want an SSD with at least 256GB .

If you choose a terminal after clarifying what you want to do in this way, it is unlikely that it will come off.


Few people buy a computer just by using Zoom.

Since I bought a computer, I want to use it for other things as well.

This is the conclusion of this time.

Based on the conditions I wrote earlier,

The required PC specs are not Zoom, but you should check and select the required specs of the service of the other thing you want to use.

This is also possible because the specifications required for Zoom are low.

I hope you can meet a good terminal.
