    I am trying to start the 14day classes. I have already downloaded everything I need and opened the sandbox and pulled up the URL. The issue is my computer slows down to an almost unusable speed when running the Sandbox.

    Currently Im using a personal computer that has meets all the hardware requirements and have a Intel pentium PCU 2127U @ 1.90GHz and 4GB or RAM amd 64bit operating system. I am wondering if it could be my processor. Is there a recommend process? Or is the processor even the issue?

    Hi Seamus,
    It is most likely the fact you have 4GB of RAM as this is the bare minimum needed to run the sandbox.
