It has an Intel GMA X4500HD Graphics Card, integrated (I think), 4gb RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 / 2.20 GHz , 500gb HDD.

Would this work well with Photoshop CS2 or would it be better to find something with dedicated graphics memory?
Thanks

The graphics card is sufficient. I think a faster processor would be a good thing for you if you deal with large raw files.

If you ever feel Photoshop getting slow, add more Ram and an SSD in the future and pop that internal HDD into an external case and just move files you hardly ever access or don't need to access fast (aka Music, Movies) onto that external.  Also if your laptop has an eSata connector, connect using that to an external hard drive and use that external as your scratch disk (Cache disk)


I run CS4 on a Macbook with 950GMA, 2GB RAM and a 2GHz Core 2 Duo and a 7200RPM hard drive.


The biggest thing that slows things down for me is RAM and Hard Drive speed (thus why get an SSD and you will be super duper happy)

This is a similar model, but has a slower processor (I think). Will it still work fine?

the specification looks pretty good except the processor speed, see if you can get processor of around 3.0 GHz
