Have had a sony vaio for 8 yrs? now and really loved it until a dll error keeps popping up and then finally the kill shot, dogs ran through sofa and ottoman with power supply attached and bent port, causing a problem with charging it. Too costly to fix an old model and not willing to pay the same as back then when I found out I have never even come close to using it to it's fullest capabilities. I am looking for someone to give me insight as to what ghz,gbs and ram I need to look for considering the below programs and usage I have provided. I don't care if it is a larger tablet or full size laptop I just don't want to buy one again that half of it's potential is wasted. After that, I should be able to figure the rest out.
The only real programs I use are the following:
adobe photoshop elements/editor (do not use for professional purpose, only hobbyist)
3d home architect/hgtv home and landscape (do not use for professional purpose, only hobbyist)
internet surfing (pinterest/facebook/ebay)
2003 Microsoft money program (I know I will have to upgrade this but will find similar updated product to replace it with)
