**FIXME**: review this section
Tails works with any resonabley modern PC computer – say manuractured after 2005.
# Startup device
To run Tails, your computer must be able to have a CD reader (and to start on
it) or to start on USB stick.
# Processor requirement
Tails requires an x86 compatible processor.
# Memory requirements
Tails (0.7.x) requires 1GB of RAM to work smoothly. It is known to work with
less memory, but you might experience strange behaviours or crashes, which we do
**not** consider at Tails bug.

external USB CD reader.
