    Hi everyone,
    I've got a 2013 27" iMac with 24gb RAM, 1GB Vram and 1TB hard drive, I am looking at taking a few preliminary design classes at school, but am not sure if the vram my iMac can handle Adobe creative cloud. I tried to ask Adobe and I know their vram says at least 512mb, but I want to be sure before I make this leap.

    I would be using Photoshop, Illustrator, In Design, Dreamweaver and a couple of others (gulp flash LOL), so would this be viable?

    Thanks,

    I'm not sure why you'd doubt Adobe's system requirements. Your computer will work fine.

    Your iMac will be fine.. Your spec's are better then some of the ones in my studio that I work at and Adobe CC works just fine...

    Nope, won't work at all. In fact, if you try, do it outside to minimize damage to surrounding structures.

    Thank you for the clarification. I wanted to be sure I could run those programs without hiccups since the Vram is in the midpoint, Adobe wouldn't tell me anything beyond what the specs say. I do not want to waste time / $ in jumping into coursework I cannot follow through.

    Appreciate hearing this. Thanks.

    Not so cute when the teacher is standing alone wondering why the class has been vaporized into a puddle of bio-sludge.
