I’ve been holding off on purchasing a new computer for more than a year. My 2007 iMac was no longer going to be able to handle the updates for my Adobe CC subscription and I needed a solution. I decide to wait until the new MacBook Pros to be released to make a decision and was disappointed with the the specifications of the new models. It was going to cost me over $2000.00 USD to purchase the MacBook Pro that I wanted. This is the point I decided to look at a Windows based laptop. I ended up purchasing a Lenovo Y700 inch laptop with the following specifications.
2.6 GHz Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM and an AMD 4 GB Radeon graphics card.
The total cost with shipping was $899.00 USD.
So far, I have been totally satisfied with my purchase. Abobe Photoshop and Lightroom run smoothly and quickly. Now, I can purchase a new lens with the money I saved.
