    Hi all,

    My wife is looking into buying a budget PC she will leave at work. Her most intensive tasks will be using CS6 Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver.

    She is set on getting this VAIO here:

    Specs: i5-2540M 2.5 GHz 3MB cache, 6GB RAM, 640 GB hard drive.

    Has anyone had any experience with these machines? Would it do well running the programs listed? I understand there is a newer model out but I think she is set on the look of this VAIO as opposed to the Aluminum Silver of the newer VAIO model.

    I've tried looking up benchmarks but I didn't exactly find the information I needed.

    Thank you!

    It will run those programs with no trouble. If color accuracy is important, I'm not sure that screen can deliver though.
