Hello,

I have an outdated Mac computer that is incompatible with the Logos 7 software.

In light of this, I was thinking of purchasing a 2016 Microsoft Surface 3 GL4-00009 4G LTE 10.8 Inch 128GB Tabllet to use for Logos; however, I don't want to spend the extra money on this if it is incompatible with the Logos 7 software.

I'd greatly appreciate any advice on this.  

Thanks,

-Joel

Welcome Big Smile

Curious about Mac model ?

Wikipedia => https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OS_X_Yosemite notes many Mac models from mid 2007 and newer can run OS X 10.10 "Yosemite", which is the minimum for Logos 7 => https://www.logos.com/system-requirements

FYI: personally using OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite on a 2011 MacBook Air (MBA) with 128 GB internal SSD and 128 GB USB drive (for Resources and WebCache) since internal SSD does not have enough storage for my Logos library. Logos Wiki => Install in different folder or drive

Also have replaced internal hard drives with Solid State Disk(s) in several Mac & Windows computers for noticeably faster performance.

Newer Surface 3 has Intel Atom x7-Z8700 with a benchmark of 1,915 => https://www.cpubenchmark.net/midlow_range_cpus.html that is 28 % slower than 2011 MBA Intel Core i5-2557 benchmark of 2,643 => https://www.cpubenchmark.net/mid_range_cpus.html 

Surface 3 review => https://www.anandtech.com/show/9219/the-surface-3-review/6 notes eMMC storage is a bit slower than SSD

Noticed Amazon has a number of certified refurbished Surface models that include 256 GB storage (along with 8 GB+ RAM).

Amazon listing does not specify Windows 10 version. Logos 7.10 Beta needs .Net Framework 4.7 or newer, which runs on Windows 10 Creator Update OR Windows 10 Anniversary Update => https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/get-started/system-requirements

I have a Surface Pro 3 and I love it. Logos works great. Full disclosure though, I have 8 Gig and 500 GB on mine.

Running on ASUS Windows 10 I7 24 gig of ram, 1 Terabyte drive.
