My current computer cannot keep up with my photo editing anymore. It is a very old laptop and I'm looking to replace it with a new desktop computer.

 

I've heard that the Dell XPS and gaming computers are quite good. Does anyone have experience using a Dell desktop for photo editing?

 

Or can anyone help with what to look for in a computer- minimum system requirements to use Lightroom and Photoshop?

 

I am not a professional, only a hobbyist, so unfortunately, I am working on a bit of a budget. 

 

Thanks for any help

Do you mean Lightroom Classic? (You didn't say that, but this is the Lightroom Classic forum)

 

Here are the system requirements:

Typically, Lightroom Classic runs better if you have something that doesn't just meet the minimum CPU requirements, but actually has a faster CPU than the minimum required. Same for GPU if you have a 4K or larger monitor.

 

16MB of memory is fine.
