Hi all! I was wondering if anyone could provide some recommendations for an affordable laptop (Windows 10) to run creative cloud apps. My daughter is 12 years old and an aspiring artist and I want to get her an affordable laptop that won't crash if she is using photoshop and illustrator at the same time. My budget in the range of $600, give or take. I have a general idea of the minimum requirements but chiefly concerned with the graphics card/memory.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the reply, John. Well, she is just learning so I don't think she will be using Premiere at present. Moreso Photoshop and Illustrator. Something that's affordable and can run those is my concern.

I think your budget is too thin.  There's nothing worse than trying to design in PS and AI on an underpowered laptop. These are pro-level design products, not toys.

 

Ensure your computer meets or exceeds the minimum system requirements to run Creative Cloud+ all other apps you intend to use.

Don't scrimp on HD, RAM or graphics memory.  16GB of RAM is recommended but 32GB is even better.
