I am glad to be here. I have a question regarding PC to act as a node for validation. I meet the minimum number of Avax coins to be a validator. At the moment I delegate them for two weeks.
I am planning to get a laptop to start as a validator at home, Intel i7 (4 cores) or equivalent, 8 or 16 GB Ram, 512 GB SSD. Wifi connection (Fiber). I might run it under Win10, if too much of a hassle I go for Ubuntu. I just read a little about Microsoft Azure possibility to run this but to do this at home is my first choice I think. Is Wifi OK for this? What do you think?
This should be Okay since it is higher spec. than the stated spec. below?
Higher spec. just to be sure and I might run some other stuff on this PC too.
- Hardware: CPU > 2 GHz, RAM > 4 GB, Storage > 10 GB free space
- OS: Ubuntu 18.04/20.04 or MacOS >= Catalina
