HP Envy 15 - does this sound like a good Photoshop Machine for travel?
Jul 23, 2012

I tried a Lenova Ideapad but hated the keyboard because it crammed so many in that the main keys were crowded. It likely wasn't enough power or good enough screen anyhow. It was a grand less though!

I've been trying to find a laptop that I can carry with me (won't be carrying long distances but shorter walks) and use on my lap in the car. Going bigger than the Envy wouldn't work. Smaller would be torture for my eyes.

Does this sound like it will work well with Photoshop CS5/6 and a few smaller programs, without to much slow down? Main editing will be on my home desktop, but hope to do some work while we are away.

Thank you for any advice. Other suggestions are welcome!
