Computer Specifications

Cummins INSITE remains one of the most demanding diagnostic software out there. If you are going to run INSITE on an older computer with weak or low performing parts you may experience extreme delays and long load times. The recommended computer specs for the program are some of the highest in the industry so if you want your diagnostic laptop to run smoothly it’s important to meet or exceed the minimum requirements, or purchase a complete diagnostic laptop kit that already comes with a high performance computer.
