Note 1: The above hardware recommendations are a minimum to achieve performance levels described in our literature.

Note 2: Serendipity brand software may be installed on a system used by other installed software. This negates the need to purchase an additional computer for Serendipity Blackmagic, Megarip or Veripress. Under such installations additional memory and CPU are recommended to avoid performance degradation.
