Hello @khokha !
Thanks for reaching out!

I think PE does not need compatibility requirements like regular exams. So, your laptop should be OK to take the exam ( obviously stable internet connection is mandatory ). 

 

For laptop:

  • No external camera is allowed
  • No external monitor is allowed
  • No external keyboard is allowed
  • External wired mouse is allowed

For PC:

  • One monitor is allowed
  • External camera is required
  • Wired keyboard is required
  • Wired mouse is required

You don’t need USB ISO for preliminary exam. 

Please raise a support case here for an official response from exam support team : https://rhtapps.redhat.com/comments

Of course you can have an external monitor connected to your laptop. But you need to close or almost close the display lid so you cannot use the internal keyboard and camera. Therefore, the external camera must be used (normally, for PE exam an external camera is not mandatory, internal is fine) and external keyboard too. All must be USB, no wireless device is allowed.
All-in-one computers are also allowed

Hi, forgot to mention. Regarding the computer for PE exam.
Make sure to have installed and use Chrome browser and be logged in as admin
You will need to allow access to camera and mic
