Hi forum.

I am in the market for a new laptop.

What hardware requirements are there for Solus? Not the minimum.

I am thinking of buying a Dell XPS 13 with the following configuration:

CPU: Intel Core i5 6200U 2.3GHz (2-Core)
RAM: 4GB DDR3L
SSD: 128 GB

or maybe an Asus ZenBook? :D :D :D :D :D :D

No minimum/recommended specs have really been determined. We know the installer won't function with < 768MB RAM. I would suggest (and this is just guestimating) 2GB RAM minimum and 2 core CPU + a graphics card that can handle a 3D desktop which is basically anything these days.

The big holdups on Linux are generally REALLY new hardware or poorly supported WiFi chipsets like Broadcom.
