InspectX requires a computer running Microsoft Windows 7 Pro or later, preferably Windows 10 on a touchscreen device on any Intel-based processor.
Once installed and running on your Windows computer, InspectX can be accessed and operated from any other device (Android/IOS/Mac/Desktop) as long as it is connected to the same network. See Networking for more info.
InspectX can work on a Mac running virtual Windows, but since the software is aimed toward eventually completing the report in the field I would recommend starting out with a computer that is capable of that end-goal.
We have had the most success with the Panasonic ToughBook CF-C2 which you can be found refurbished on eBay for $300 – $500.
They may look a little dated but this is still a recent model with all the capability of a modern computer and the added benefits of being semi-rugged, having a built in hand-strap for working and typing on the screen, long-lasting hot-swappable battery, sunlight readable screen, etc. Take a look on eBay and see if this interests you. I typically search for “Panasonic CF-C2 SSD” because my other preference is a solid state hard drive with no spinning components when working in the field. The only other thing I would recommend is one that already has Windows 10. Our software will run on older versions of Windows of course, but the on-screen keyboard in Windows 10 is far superior to that of earlier versions.
When selecting a computer I recommend paying close attention to machines with long battery life (preferably hot-swappable). For screen size I would recommend 10” or greater. While you can use any sized screen, we found anything smaller than 10” to be somewhat of a strain for long periods of time. InspectX will run on older versions on Windows but we recommend running Windows 8 or newer since the newer Windows on-screen keyboard is a vast improvement over previous versions.
