I recently subscribed to adobe creative cloud annaual package and am using my macbook air with some moderate specs ( early 2015 model, 8 GB RAM, i7 processor with Intel HD Graphics 6000). However, i believe these specs are not sufficient enought to run the adobe products smoothly. Especially the machine is getting hanged while i was working with illustarator. At same time, i am not in a possion to afford a high end macbook pro with some good specs.
So i was wondering if i could use an AWS EC2 instace with high specs to install adobe CC and continue my work. Would it really fesiable? Please do revert back with your comments.

They are sufficient for most programs if configured suitably. Unless you do 4k editing in Premiere al lthe time or deal with extgremely large files in Photoshop, I can't see what you should not be able to accomplish. If there are specific issues, it would be more useful to tell us about them so peopel can advise on solutions and workarounds. The rest won't work, anyway. You can't install CC apps arbitrarily on virtual cloud instances for technical and legal reasons.
Just checking, so I can't install Adobe CC, on AWS Workstations?
I have been trying and it just fails. I was thinking it was a technical issue but now think they have purposely blocked it.
"So I can't install Adobe CC, on AWS Workstations?"
You need to consult Amazon about that.

No. CC Desktop software must be installed on a computer running Windows or Mac operating systems.
See system requirements below.
Keep in mind that these are minimum requirements. You need additional resources to support your operating system and all other software & utilities that you use regularly. Adding more RAM and an external HD might help you without costing an arm & leg.
Sadly it's not possible to add more RAM to MacBooks after purchase.
Having said that, the MacBook Air in question should be able to run most CC apps OK.
THanks all for your quick response. I did go through the following threads and performed required changes to illustarator and its far better now. So my assumption with macbook air specs was completely wrong.
