    Will my laptop run CS5 well?

      Hello everyone and thank you in advance for your help.


      I am not knowledgeable when it comes to computers and apologize for that. I was wondering if you could help me determine if my laptop will run CS5 well.


      I have a 2 year old laptop. Its a Dell Latitude E6400, 14.1" screen, Core 2 duo processor (2.53ghz), 8 GIG RAM and 320GIG HD


      Do you think this will be enough umph to run CS5?


      thanks so much for your input. I really appreciate it.


      my best,

          It should. I have an Acer with similar specs, and run CS4 with few problems. You'll likely want an external monitor to use when you're not on the road, and some sort of external storage.


          There's also an issue with some laptops (including mine), where holding the space bar renders the trackpad inoperable, until the space bar is released, so you can't temporarily change to the hand tool. This problem does not arise if you use an external mouse or tablet, so you'll probably want one of those, also.
