I recently started a thread about laptops that is just under this one. After doing some research i am coming across several varying perspectives as to what should be "in" a system for editing.
Can anyone share real world advise as to what they would consider MINIMUM requirements, not necessarily for laptops but also for a desktop system.
Some say that the more ram the better, others have told me that 4 is enough. A friend of mine that runs an It department has advised of a system that i thought would be inadequate but has suggested running an ssd drive and that would speed things up. whilst it may open the programs faster, i doubt it is going to help with the process of editing, but i could be wrong.
I was thinking 8GB of ram would be minimum, as far as processor, does i3, i5 or i7 make much of a difference ??? as in my other thread, i would be mainly concerned with photo editing ( Lightroom, ps ).
Any help would be appreciated
