SL out of the box

Recommended Posts

Personally I have a couple of custom built desktops that have no problem with SL (or anything else I have thrown at them yet for that matter.)

But I am trying to help someone with no computer skills get online on SL. Is there a laptop or other portable device (about 13" screen) that will run Firestorm and SL out of the box? PC, Mac, Android, it doesn't really matter. I don't want bare minimum but there won't be much else running except a browser. So something middle of the road maybe? (Frankly I am tired of comparing the SL system requirements to pre-built systems.)

I have seen plenty of topics on upgrading or building PC's but does anyone have out of box experience? Thanks.

nearly every modern laptop and pc will run SL, just the levels of quality will be different.
For qlternative viewers and for use on other devices you can have a look here

In general you can say tablets and other lower spec'd devices will not run SL otherwise than by another 3rd party help like https://brightcanopy.com/

(additional costs)

The third party viewer link is nothing new to me. The Bright Canopy (Frame) link is a revelation so thanks for that.

But I am looking for more specifics than "nearly every modern laptop." Like examples of what people use. I realize out of box people won't likely be using these forums but since I build my own I would want to drop a nice graphics card into anything I purchased and that's not an option here. I am just not familiar with low/mid range off-the-shelf prebuilt systems. Thank you.

Anything with a 7th gen i series processor with intel HD620 will play SL at general medium/high settings in 1080p no issues

Anything with a mobile 1050/1050ti works fine as well
