Could you please recommend the suitable computer specification for optimize use of Illustrator and Photoshop?

We've used adobe design program  for working. When we design our work, program sut down sometimes.

It seems like that our working data is too heavy to our computer.

So design team decided to buy new one and need to Adobe's reference for persuading our boss.

[Current status]

Actually, I've already checked computer sp@ecification which is mensioned on the Adobe website.

And all of our computers are enough to use according to your website.

The problem is our design file is too big and heavy (ex. leaflet size = 528 mm X 440 mm)

- Current computer status

1. Laptop computer

2. CPU: 2.60GHz

3. RAM: 8G

4. SSD: 256 GB SSD

5. 1920 X 1080 (monitor)

6. LED back light type (monitor)

- Problems

1. Sutting down

2. Frequently warning message, not enough to memory (RAM)

3. Cracked images

4. Different color on one monitor (the colors between top of the monitor and bottom of the monitor look different, eventhough it's same colors)

Please let us know which computer is good to use for optimize use.

It's not mean minimum specification for use of adobe programs.

You don't need to consider price.

Best regards,

C. Kim

increasing your ram would be the biggest benefit though you also need another harddrive for your production files.  256gb is plenty for your executables, but not for file storage.

There's nothing too big and heavy about that document size if those dimensions are typical.

People work with those document sizes daily on similar machines with no issues.

What are the file sizes of each design file on disk in MB or GB? How many pages per document?

Which operating system are you using?

Thank you for your comments.

The size of each leaflet design file is about 5MB for 2 pages.

Yes. I know. That isn't too big to occur frequently design errors to most designers.

I've also designed even over 500MB file without any problems at previous company.

But now that errors come out daily, it's maybe heavy in case of our working laptop computer.

I guess the problem is using the laptop computer instead of desktop, and long time using (about 11 hours).

And a lot of security programs occupy RAM space when we design.

We need reference of experts for buying new one to persuade our boss.

That's why I remain a question in here and request your comments.

Thank you.
