Hi,

I have a Lenovo C460 desktop computer. I'm going to be teaching online this summer with "Zoom" and I need to be able to use a virtual "Green Screen" so I can blur out the background. Can anyone help me figure out if I can do any upgrades or if I need to buy another computer. Thanks.

The specs for this computer are here, processor is 4th generation Intel® Pentium™ G3220T (2.6 GHz, 2-core)

Zoom requirements are here(without a physical green screen).

I assume you want video with virtual green screen
Video without a physical green screen

  • Zoom Desktop Client for PC, version 4.6.4 (17383.0119) or higher
  • Windows 7, 8, or 10 (64-bit)
  • Supported processors (720p video)
    • Intel i5, i7, i9 - 2 cores or higher, gen 6 or higher, except atom and y series
      • Processor must have Intel GPU - except HD620 with driver version 23 or higher
      • OS must be Windows 10, 64-bit
The problem is that is an all-in-one That REALLY limits your flexibility. You would have to find a used i5-4570T or I7-4770T The i5 is reasonably priced on E-Bay the i7 is kind of expensive. There are YouTube videos on CPU swap for that machine.
