I’m about to purchase a new laptop for my roasting business and I would like to purchase the one on which Cropster runs best.
Here is the answer from Cropster FAQ, accessed May 2018:
Operating System • Windows Vista or later • Mac OS • Linux Minimum Requirements • Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 (K8) 2.6 GHz • RAM: 2GB • HDD: 100MB • USB standard-A port or a compatible adapter • Display: 1366 x 768 resolution • Java 6 Release 45 Recommended Requirements • CPU: Intel Core i3 or AMD Athlon II (K10) 2.8 GHz • RAM: 4GB • HDD: 500MB • USB standard-A port or a compatible adapter • Display: 1920 x 1080 resolution • Latest release of Java from java.com Software Requirements: • Please note that some users experience issues running the Roasting Intelligence while using a mismatched version of Java for their operating system (32 or 64 bit), while using certain versions of Java 7, or while multiple versions of Java are installed A stable internet connection is required for the RI to download profiles, green lots, machines, workers, authenticate usernames, and upload roasts to our servers. You'll need to download and run the RI while connected to the internet at least once; afterwards, you can roast without an internet connection, but will need to connect to update your inventory or reference curves and to receive updates.
The RI will not run on a Chromebook.
