Please note that we highly recommend purchasing a computer (desktop or laptop) with higher specifications than you think you will need. Rather safe than sorry is very much a factor.

We strongly recommend setting number formatting on the operating system to use full stops for decimals and commas for thousands of separators. This can also be achieved by setting the operating system’s language to US/UK English. Not doing so will cause issues with data collection and processing.
