Linux Mint 19.1 'Tessa'
Im doing a paper for school comparing Windows 10 and Linux Mint 19.1 'Tessa' and ive been looking around for the minimum hardware requirements for Mint. On the mint blog it only displays RAM, HDD space and display requirements yet it doesnt talk about processor or graphics card requirements. I understand that the processor and graphics card you choose will most likely depend on the intended purphose for said machine, but there has to be a minimum requirement to run the OS, right?

    I think it would be safe to say a video that supports 1024 x 768 and a dual core CPU or better should be fine..I don't know anyone running a power gaming system using Linux. Linux was designed for other reasons and that keeps the hardware requirements down.

    You should be able to run Mint 19.1 on any system that supports the minimum RAM, HDD and display requirements. At the low end (older hardware), the issues will come from sluggish response. But it still should run correctly.

    I run Mint on older hardware with good results.

    Minimum requirements. 1GB RAM if possible go for 2GB RAM for a comfortable usage. 20GB of disk space & 1024×768 resolution for comfortable working.
