Hello my name is Gregory. I would like to ask a few questions about running Whonix on a notebook computer.
What would be an ideal notebook/specs for running
Whonix (both VMs in VirtualBox)
VPN client on host
There has been alot of talk about Intel hardware having a backdoor in it. Obviously we can neither confirm/deny this information as we don't have access to it, we only have speculation but logically newer hardware would more likely have it since, unfortunately, we are going downhill when it comes to freedom and privacy.
So what would be an ideal notebook that is cheap and can run Whonix and everything on the notebook smoothly without lagging and glitches. We don't need to get specific about models, just specs and most importantly CPU models. RAM is cheap and upgradable so it is irrelevant as it would be 8GB. Would the CPU at least have to be an i3/i5/i7 model or can it be a late model Core 2 Duo? Again this is not a question of what can run this setup, it is what can run this setup very smoothly and without lagging.
mirimir has said in the past that SSDs can compromise FDE so my question goes out to mirimir and everybody else on that. Can SSD compromise FDE and why?
