Hi. My company is considering MacBook pros to replace our iMacs so we can be more mobile. What specs on the MacBook would be required to run photoshop, illustrator and indesign without issue?

To be honest, I would probably get a good Windows DELL laptop instead of Apple.  More bang for the buck.

That said, these the 9 best rated laptops for Creative Cloud users.

Best advice, buy what you can afford.

Thanks Nancy, the prices are pretty steep. My big concern is fonts. Will they easily cross over from one platform to the other?

What fonts? 

Adobe Fonts will work on either Windows or Mac systems.
