The tabcasting min specs say 2GHz for an i5, so I'm not sure whether the i5-4200U would be powerful enough.
Has anyone here tried one?
Difficult to say. If your intent is to tab-cast a video
, I would say that's probably not enough CPU horsepower.
The minimum tab-casting spec is likely just
for casting a static tab (like a web page), not including the additional
CPU load for video playback.
Do you have a specific use case in mind?
