Understanding Computers/lap top spec


Dear Dan,
I want to but a lap top that will handle Photoshop (mine currently freezes during photo editing about 20% of the time), handle Solidworks (a glutton for memory), and handle streaming video from the internet. Not simultaneously, of course.
1.   Which brand to you recommend? (Apple is out. I have too many Word files)
2.   What features should I look for?
Thanks, Sincerely, Dick Schlueter

Hello Richard:
Thanks for asking this question.
Please refer to sites I mention here.  They will give you a good overview about laptop with regard to Photoshop.  Please pay a special attention to 64 bit processing laptop.

I hope these info will help you to make a better decision.
