      On a limited budget, and looking at a Dell Inspiron 15 configured as follows:


      2nd generation intel core i3-2350M processer (3M cache, 2.3 Ghz)

      Windows 8, 64-bit

      15.6" HD (720p) Truellife LED Display

      4GB single channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600 MHz

      500GB 5400 RPM SATA hard drive

      Intel HD Graphics


      Among other concerns, is the graphics capability adequate with CS6?  I've tried to research enough to understand whether enhanced GPU capability (with NVIDIA GPU cards) is a must, or if it is preferred, and I simply can't determine the answer from my research.  In other words, will the basic computer work?  I don't want to invest in the equipment and find out later it is incompatible.  Thanks.
