    Best Choice? [Best computer hardware for running Photoshop to avoid brush lag?]

    Shadowil

      Hello, I've tried to find photoshop's hardware forum but it was impossible. I have the following question.

       

      Short story: I have an i5 6200u laptop with 16gb of Ram Dual Channel, with a SATA III 1tb SSD Laptop. I work mostly with 20-30mb RAW files and paint from time to time but I can notice brush lag with 20" 300ppi documents.

       

      I would like to improve my experience and I wanted to know if there will be a noticiable improvement from the ASUS compared to the Acer? Or is there a top where photoshop can't squeeze more power from the CPU and GPU and the cheapest gpu model would be best choice?
