Purchasing desktops to run CS5.5 Suite
I'll keep this short and sweet. I'm in the process of gathering quotes for upgrading a couple of our ICT suites during the summer.
We currently have a load of Core2 Duo's in the rooms, but software-wise mainly we use MS Office 2010, and the Adobe Web Premium Suite CS5.5.
There's a bit of a discussion going on at the moment over what we really need in terms of hardware to run these software packages comfortably. Obviously Office programs run fine on virtually anything, but the likes of Fireworks, Flash Pro & Photoshop need a little bit more oompf behind them (oompf is the technical term).
I want to see what people on here think... If you were specifying a system to run those Adobe programs comfortably, what would it be? i3? i5? Onboard 2500, or 4000? Standalone graphics?
