I edit and convert Full HD and 4K videos, and also play 4K videos on my PC. When using Nero which kind of PC system would I need?

For editing, transcoding, exporting, and playback of 4K video you need a high perfomance PC system equipped with minimum processor types like Intel® Core™ i7-2600K (3,4 GHz) or AMD FX 8320 (3,5 GHz). We recommend at least for 4 GB of RAM – more will be better.

If you are also utilizing the latest high quality video format ‘HEVC’ (High Efficiency Video Coding) – only supported in Nero 2017 Platinum – your PC must be equipped with a processor type of at least Intel® Core™ i7-6700 (4 GHz) and a minimum of 8 GB of RAM.

Make sure your graphics card supports one of these standards in order to benefit from this function.

Your hard disk should have a minimum of 5 GB free storage space. This is needed for program and effect content installation as well as temporary files during processing.

For burning and play back of DVD-Video discs you need a DVD recorder drive. This will also be utilized for installing from DVD disc if you have bought a box version product. If you plan to also burn your HD Video content to a Blu-ray Disc with menus you need to have a Blu-ray Disc recoder available (this will also burn CDs and DVDs).

In most cases I only copy discs, rip and burn music CDs, and create disc covers. When using Nero which kind of PC system would I need?

For such cases you do not neeed a powerful system. Basically any new PC or Laptop you can buy today should fulfill the needs easily (for the case of a missing disc recorder drive, see below).

Your PC should at least have  a 2 GHz AMD or Intel® processor and 1 GB of RAM minimum. You need free hard disk space of 500 MB for installing the program and for temporary files.

Your PC should have a build in disc recorder. If this is missing or you only own a laptop without a disc drive you can also connect an external disc recoder via USB. If you prefer to also burn Blu-ray Discs aside from CD/DVD you need a Blu-ray Disc recorder (this will also burn CDs and DVDs). Otherwise a normal CD/DVD disc recoder will do. When it comes to drive speed more is always better. With higher speed it takes less time for copying, ripping, and burning.
