I'm trying to get feedback on whether the Creative Cloud suite would run on my current laptop. Creative Cloud is required for most classes in my master's program in journalism and the school recommends purchasing a new computer altogether, but I'm trying to explore options before going down that (expensive) road. I've heard a lot of different feedback; the school says there's no way my laptop would support the suite, some friends in IT say I could possibly buy extra memory (I currently have 4 GB). I'm looking for an honest and impartial opinion on whether it's absolutely necessary for me to purchase new hardware altogether to make the suite run smoothly (in which case, I would stick with Mac).
System Requirement varies for different application :
