Accessing onshape on 'slow'computers

I am working with schools based in Uk and Tanzania and I was wondering if there is a way to find out the minimum system requirements for laptops/computers/notebooks accessing the onshape. Also what is the limiting factor? perhaps the processor speed or type of processor? or perhaps the graphics card.

The specification of the notebooks that the school in Tanzania have is provided below

HP EliteBook 2560p Notebook PC
Intel Core i7 and Core i5

Also is it possible to use onshape with tempremental internet access e.g an internet connection that may cut out frequently

Some advice would be very much appreciated.
Thank you,

    Hi Pete, My sincere apologies for the late response. Thank you very much for your help. I think you are right, the internet connection is probably the biggest issue.
