I need to purchase a laptop to run Adobe Photoshop CS6. I had a Toshiba Satellite i7 quad core with 12 RAM and it responded slowly. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

It shouldn't run slow unless it has no/a bad GPU or a virus. Have you run Malwarebytes Anti Malware and see what it turns up? And also, what is the model of the CPU and GPU? Its not all about how much RAM you have.


Sorry if I snap at you. I can't stand stupid for more than 5 minutes at a time.

I burned up the motherboard on my Toshiba because I didn't use a cooling table I guess. The specs to the Asus I am considering are in the link below. I'm not familiar with the terms CPU and GPU Thank you.

The only reason I can think of that it may have ' responded ' slowly is if it were using an intel based onboard graphics.  The 2 in one touchscreen you suggested I would not consider to be a 'speedy' system either when it comes to using CS6. 

 

Are you doing real time rendering or just manipulating pictures?

 

You may want to look at the MSI or ASUS laptops from xoticpc.com or even amazon, if you get an SSD for the OS drive and a larger secondary drive it will be a very quick and snappy system.  I suggest not going below the 960m mobile nvidia processor.

 

Good Luck !

Having a speedy desktop with a remote connection to a portable laptop might suit you, especially since the desktop will be upgradeable.
