Looks good for the most part - except the Intel graphics chip. It's okay, but will eat up 4GB of your 12GB RAM (leaving you with 8GB unless you change this in the BIOS). That graphics chip isn't great for 3d work either, so if you plan to use Photoshop's 3d features extensively: think again. Not a good machine for video or 3d work.
For regular graphics editing and illustrator work it will be fine.
Although a desktop would give you more options, and (much) better hardware and speed for the same price, of course.
Thank you for your advice! I am worried about the graphics chip too.
My friend would like to buy a laptop, and may take it out for work. She would like to use it for designing T-shirt, maybe some logos and patterns.
Is it appropriate to use photoshop to do so? What kind of laptop do you suggested?
When designing t-shirts, logos and patterns, your friend is better off using Illustrator. Having them as vector based will allow them to scale, which means that they can be output to various sizes that may be needed. She can always output a raster based image when needed, but starting with vectors is the professional way to go. I use a MAC, so I can't help advise on a PC.
