Adobe Photoshop/Photoshop on Celeron


Hi.  I want to buy a computer and on a budget. I would just like to know if Adobe Photoshop runs on an Intel Celeron N2830 processor? I need photoshop for my busines.

Hi Seth,

Here are the requirements for the most recent versions of Adobe Photoshop:

The Intel Celeron N2830 is not a good choice for Photoshop. I'm assuming you are looking at an Acer laptop based on the chip. While affordable, that laptop series is built for basic computer functions, like word processing and internet browsing. The clock speeds for the Intel Celeron N series are not up to snuff with the Intel Pentium 4, which can cause a lag in Photoshop operations.
