I read the system requirements for Tor and Tails, but for Windows-based x86 (64-bit) systems, what properties or hardware should someone steer away from when making a purchase that might make the system allergic to Tor and Tails? In other words, prevent them from working properly, given that systems cannot be returned once bought?

What sort of issues are known for running Tails and Tor on Windows systems? Are Intel Celeron, AMD or other processor too weak to run Tails and Tor?


Tails is based on Debian so the hardware support is basically the same.

You should definitively have a look at the known issues, which lists the problematic hardware.

From my experience, Lenovo Thinkpads are perfectly supported.
