Notes:

(*) Please note that Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP.  Not recommended for new deployments due to the lack of security updates.

- The RP5700 does not meet the minimum recommended hardware requirements for ShareScan 5.1. ShareScan 5.1's minimum recommended hardware is 2GB of RAM and a dual core processor. Upgrading the RAM on the 5700 will not sufficiently improve performance due to the clock speed and single core.

- For information regarding PCs shipped prior to the RP5700 please refer to PC model specific documentation.
