I am looking to buy a somewhat cheap computer to use with Photoshop and Illustrator. I have been looking at the Acer Swift 1 and I was wondering if Photoshop and Illustrator would work on it. (If it's not compatible, do you have any cheap recommendations for a computer that is compatible with Photoshop and Illustrator.)
A quick look at the spec for the Acer Swift 1 would suggest it is not ideal for Photoshop. 1366x768 is a low resolution for the screen 1920x1080 would be better and the graphics seem to be on a motherboard chip not a card. In addition the base model has only 4GB of memory which is not enough for comfortable use. I'm not myself a fan of Acer having wasted money with them before, but I think the Swift 1 is probably designed more for Office applications and would be fine with that, for Photoshop look elsewhere even if it does involve splashing a little more cash.
