Laptop technical specifications to run CC?

Hi All,

I'm starting a new job soon and fear that the standard laptop given to employees won't effectively handle InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Acrobat (or running any of these simultaneously). I will be the only person at the company, and probably am the first, who will be using these programs so I doubt they have any experience/ familiarity with the system requirements.

That said, I wondered whether any of you could advise as to what the basic specs for a Windows laptop should be (CPU, ram, storage etc.) in order to run these programs effectively without freezing up or breaking after 2 years? I'm by no means looking for a beast machine, just specs that will do the job.

Thanks!

ps is probably the most demanding of those, Photoshop system requirements

but you can check each by googling: <program name> specs

that just gives you min specs though.  you probably want, at least, 16gb ram.
