Might it be time to update the "recommended requirements for PC" on this page? http://www.logos.com/support/techfaq

I read the Forums and see significant comments about Processing Power, Graphics Cards, 6+ GB of RAM, 7200 RPM HDD or SSD, and multiple monitors. But when the technology team at my church asks for a definitive statement about minimum and recommended requirements in order to be good stewards of our equipment, the official word from Logos is MUCH lower than what these users are suggesting.

I am able to run L4 on my Toshiba Netbook that is 2 years old so I realize it CAN be done on low-powered machines. But I experience significant delays when doing a Syntax search, or highlighting, or changing layouts on my 4 year old Core Duo.

The Ivy Bridge processors are about to come out but the "recommended" processors from the page above is still a Core 2 Duo and HD speed isn't even mentioned on the official page. Our team doesn't want to buy a show horse when a farm mule will do and I struggle with feelings of shame for asking for forum-suggested hardware that far exceeds what Logos recommends.

+1 Yes wish recommended hardware for Logos 4 on Mac and PC included a similar statement as wiki => Logos 4 Mac that has: "Logos 4 is resource intensive on Mac & PC – benefits from fast processor, graphics, and disk along with adequate memory (i.e. newer hardware since Logos 4 being designed for use over 5 to 8 years)."

Caveat: Logos 4 has some opportunities to wait even when using more capable equipment (albeit wait times are significantly smaller: e.g. can reindex Logos library with over 6,000 resources in four hours on a laptop with 2nd Generation i7 and 7200 RPM hard drive instead of a few days on a netbook).
