Dedicated computer for node

#1

My current laptop has a SGX enabled processor so I plan on using it for my node for the genesis game. Will I need to purchase an additional laptop for daily use or will I still be able to use the one I currently have while it is being used as a node (low stake right around the 25,000 mark). I’m not a gamer, the highest stress I probably put on my computer is streaming videos. Thank you!

You could use your laptop. Just bare in mind that the enigma stack runs on Linux OS (Ubuntu I think is the OS of choice). Obviously you need to make sure your laptop never powers off and has a stable internet connection. Do not rely on wifi. Wired connection, preferably to a fiber is your best bet.

Great thank you! Yes I plan on installing Linux and I have Fios at home so I should be set.
