What are the minimum computer specifications required to print to my Eddie printer?

PC - Specifications/Requirements

Ensure the PC specs meet or exceed the following specifications.
  1. Windows 8 / 10 / 11 Compatible (32bit/64bit)
  2. For PC Pentium Dual Core processor or later.  (Typically a PC from 2007 or later)
  3. For Mac OS 10.11 or higher. 
  4. 8 GB of RAM
  5. 10 GB of free hard drive space
  6. Desktop computer is preferable*
  7. iOS or Android devices are not compatible. (This includes iPhones, Android Phones or tablets such as iPad or Galaxy Tab)
  8. Chromebooks are not compatible.
*Laptops should work fine but they tend to have less RAM and processor speed, to begin with, so it is especially important that the specifications above are met. 

Even newer computers that meet these specifications could be problematic if they are full of bloatware or viruses. It is difficult sometimes to realize your computer is running slower than it should. Especially if you haven't ever experienced anything faster.  The best way to tell on a PC is to look at Task Manager to see how much RAM and processor speed are being used.  Anything below 50% is good.  Start closing programs, and browser tabs to free up more RAM and processor speed.  If you closed all the programs you can see, you might have to start stopping processes.  However, many of these processes are critical to your PC so if you are unsure of what to close, it might be time to call in an expert to clean up your PC.

Mac Specifications/Requirements

Any Macintosh MacBook, iMac, Mac Mini, or Mac Pro with OS 10.13 - MacOS 14 will work with Eddie! (Specific OS versions are listed below.) If you are using a new MacBook or MacMini, it may not have a standard USB port.  Instead, it will have a smaller USB-C port.  You will need a simple adapter to connect the included USB cable to your Mac.  You will need a USB-C to USB-A adapter similar to the one linked here.
