I'm starting a new job soon and fear that the standard laptop given to employees won't effectively handle InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Acrobat (or running any of these simultaneously). I will be the only person at the company, and probably am the first, who will be using these programs so I doubt they have any experience/ familiarity with the system requirements.
That said, I wondered whether any of you could advise as to what the basic specs for a Windows laptop should be (CPU, ram, storage etc.) in order to run these programs effectively without freezing up or breaking after 2 years? I'm by no means looking for a beast machine, just specs that will do the job.
Since you are looking for basic specs, please see the link shared below for basic system requirements to run Creative cloud apps:
Hope this answers your query.
Feel free to update the thread.

ps is probably the most demanding of those, Photoshop system requirements
but you can check each by googling: <program name> specs
that just gives you min specs though. you probably want, at least, 16gb ram.
