increasing your ram would be the biggest benefit though you also need another harddrive for your production files. 256gb is plenty for your executables, but not for file storage.
It seems like that our working data is too heavy to our computer.
The problem is our design file is too big and heavy (ex. leaflet size = 528 mm X 440 mm)
There's nothing too big and heavy about that document size if those dimensions are typical.
People work with those document sizes daily on similar machines with no issues.
What are the file sizes of each design file on disk in MB or GB? How many pages per document?
Which operating system are you using?
Thank you for your comments.
The size of each leaflet design file is about 5MB for 2 pages.
Yes. I know. That isn't too big to occur frequently design errors to most designers.
I've also designed even over 500MB file without any problems at previous company.
But now that errors come out daily, it's maybe heavy in case of our working laptop computer.
I guess the problem is using the laptop computer instead of desktop, and long time using (about 11 hours).
And a lot of security programs occupy RAM space when we design.
We need reference of experts for buying new one to persuade our boss.
That's why I remain a question in here and request your comments.
