At the top of this forum are buying guide links. I want to add the Notebookcheck top 10s soon but with PS and Illustrator you want to look at a top 10 model then go check the color test results.
I'm a grad student in need a laptop that can comfortably run both Photoshop and Illustrator (preferably at the same time). My lab owns copies of both programs, but only for Windows, so I'm limited to Windows laptops. It'd also be nice if the laptop had a fair number of USB ports, along with an HDMI and/or VGA port (or a converter for the latter).
I've been trying to keep up with laptop reviews, but I have no idea what kind of specs I should be looking for, given these requirements. If anyone has any suggestions re: a specific laptop, or even just the minimum specs I should be using, I'd be extremely grateful.
