Forum Thread: Processor for Kali

Hey everyone

im planning to buy a new 2 in 1 hybrid laptop which basically is a laptap and a tablet will the processor affect performance when running any pen testing programmes?

What would be a good processor that could make kali run smoothly and efficently to do pen testing task for educational purposes.

I looked at a laptop i liked and it has intel Celeron processor which is Dual Core with 2 16 GHZ and 2 58 GHZ with burst

Im planning to use kali from my laptop with a live usb with persistence but if it makes life easier i will install it as the main OS.

Any help at all would be appreciated
ALSO other 2 in 1 laptops i found has i3 processors would they be alright for pen testing?

Kali is not generally demanding except for password cracking. Just about any laptop will work, but if I were you, I'd stay away from those with Celeron processors.

Thanks for the help :)

Is it because of the Celeron processing speed? or is it a factor of power efficiency?
