Community Question

I bought JD and assembled him. He's a fantastic humanoid! Now I need to buy a PC computer. When matching the specs quoted below, the computer speed is 1.7gHz (with 2.7 Turbo boost). Is this too slow?


System Performance EZ-Builder was designed to be very efficient and run on lower scale PC's. This does not mean that we recommend low scale PC's, even though the software will run. The recommended CPU is an Intel i5 equivalent with 4GB of RAM and Windows 8.1. The 3D designer and 3D instruction interface will use video hardware acceleration, if available. Screen Resolution The minimum screen resolution for ezbuilder is 1024x768. Ideally, the best resolution for ezbuilder is 1920x1080.

The computer you have is more than enough. No need for a new pc. Just make sure you have the required operating system, which was not mentioned in your email.

@DJ Sures: Thanks sincerely. Knowing which computers work with JD is extremely helpful. The order should go through on Wednesday. In the meantime, I'll hang out in the LEARN section - absolutely fantastic and amazing stuff! The person responsible for all this is a gifted robotics genius! I'm sure I speak on behalf of all the community when saying a big thank you of appreciation!
