Buy or build?
My experience is with Premiere Pro video editing, and having other programs open at the same time
Build see reply #6 for my hardware list in https://forums.adobe.com/message/6536849
I think buying a computer is where I want to start. I want to be able to run Photoshop and Illustrator at the same time, or Bridge, Photoshop and InDesign at the same time..it varies, but now, more than one slows the computer down to a snail's pace. I do graphic design and photo editing and need desperately to replace my computer. Is there any place Adobe addresses computer needs for running more than one app at a time?
>any place Adobe addresses computer needs for running more than one app at a time
I have only ever seen the MINIMUM requirements for any one program listed on Adobe's pages System requirements | Creative Cloud
Click the ADK link I provided and start reading and selecting a price level, such as the i7-hdv ADK Video Editing offers, NLE, Video Editing Computer, Video editing computers, Video Editing Workstations, Video Editin…
I think I need to clarify, what I saw on the link you provided was way over my budget!! I am looking for a laptop under $1,500 with a graphics card that will run 2-3 CC apps at the same time. From what I've seen online I think they are out there, I just don't know the exact specs to look for since, as you agreed - Adobe doesnt list requirements for running more than one application at a time. I have just begun to look and have found several laptops that have NVIDIA geforce graphic cards with difference series numbers than what are on Adobe's list - GeForce 960M for example. This is obviously going to be a learning experience!! I don't know the differences/benefits of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX vs. M vs. Quadro and/or the Intel HD and AMD Radeon Graphics cards. I have had NVIDIA in my last two computers - that is the extent of my knowledge. I know that its important to get the right graphics card and that's where I am having a hard time - where do I go to find out which one is best for what I need? I appreciate your responses but the product and (I believe) the equipment was a (little!) over my head ! Anything more in my league would be greatly appreciated!!
I must state that it is a crime that Adobe doesn't provide such information. They have some of the brightest computer geeks at their hands who seriously know what it takes to run Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator at the same time. As a designer running these 3 programs is a must, but my computer crawls the entire time.
Adobe! I love you, but give us some help!

I'm moving this to the Hardware Forum so you might get some suggestions.
hmmm, $1,500. I wouldn't get anything less than a i-7 7700hq. best would be 8th gen coffee lake proc at 4.5ghz. 16GB RAM 1060gtx, samsung evo 850, a good IPS screen. photoshop loves 4 cores with as high a freq as you can get.
These 3 are within $70 of your budget on amazon. all Intel Quad Core i7-7700HQ and name brands
