For a pc serving as the unit for a DSLR mirror booth - what are the specs for a unit that would be optimal for the mirror functionality?

Is an i5 with higher cpu speed better than an i7 that is a little slower cpu speed?
Also - when you set the specs, is it for dual core or quad core cpus?

Lastly, what is the main factor that sparkbooth relies on? CPU speed over all, or quad vs dual etc?

I want a spec that allows the mirror booth to run flawlessly with smooth animations.

    The best way to check for functionality is to check the processor model on www.cpubenchmark.net. Just google the CPU model, for example Google search "i3 3200" and CPU benchmark will always be one of the first websites to pop up.
    For Sparkbooth Premium (webcam) you would want an average of 3000 and single thread of 1300, for Sparkbooth DSLR anything over 3500 average and single core of over 1500.
    Higher is always better because it takes more strain off the processor (lower heat)
    This also applies to AMD CPU's
