    Budget Laptop for non video use!


      Hello, im new to the forum and have been looking through a lot of posts about machine specs over the past couple of days. Hoping someone can help!


      I'm looking to buy a budget machine (approx £1500 max) to run CS6. We will be using Illustrator and Photoshop for fairly basic tasks (producing brochures, editing photos etc. ) It will all be static design work ( no video).


      Most of the posts ive come across are discussing "video" , i am trying to find out if we can get away with a lower spec machine for our basic requirment. We're looking at this 4gb RAM lenovo W530 as its just about the right price level.

      Will this do the job? We'll not be using CS6 on a full time basis, ad hoc as and when we need to produce an advert, presentation or som other from of promotional material.


      Any help would be much appreciated!


      Thanks Neil
