Call me an old foogey, but we ran such applications on 1/2 the machine you noted. Detail exactly how you arrived at the core duo as the minimum here.
In closing, you have your price point, you have your market area so all you need to do is see what fits.
First of all my apologies for any faults in my spelling. I'm European and English is not my first language...
I'm looking for a GOOD QUALITY notebook best suitable for design with Adobe Illustrator and Dreamweaver. I know "the brand in design" is Apple but I find the pro-series notebook to expensive. The budget is about $1000.
I know I need a CoreDuo 1Ghz processor and 1Gb of RAM. Also keeping in mind that the new Windows version will appear early next year.
The notebook does not have to optimized for mobility for I will use it in my home and at offices (at the desk).
Please help me choose...
