Asking for a friend...I have no idea...
Windows not mac
They use photoshop / bridge / batch processes large image files...
Prob only needs 512 HD as most stored in cloud /external
~Dedicated graphics card required?
Suggestions for make / model? Looking at Dell XPS 13 & 15...Mostly used docked into screen hence 13", but they seem to lack power...Given the info above will 13 be ok, without dedicated graphics and 16gb.
Not required, but you get extra performance oomph from compatible GPUs.
Best thing is a high RAM overheard and, if possible, two HDs (scratch SSD & another SSD/Spinning Rust for general swappery)
Thinkpads can be decent workhorses too, but Dells come well recommended (even if they are a bit beige)
My understanding is that batch processing image files uses more CPU resources.
While GPU handles displaying live response of edites/effects.
- Phew! Good, some one agrees with me.pango
- so does that mean processor over dedicated graphics?craigatkinson
- If they're just editing one photo and batch the rest, I'd say cpu. If they edited a lot of photos individually or complex, GPU.pango
- probably makes sense to get a decent cpu AND gpu so that it lasts awhilemonospaced
The XPS15 is going to be near the top of performance for laptops. The CPU in it (assuming you are looking at the i7 modeal) is quite a bit better than the XPS13.
did the xps15 - cracking deal + student discount, got £500 off
