At the moment, I'm using an almost two years old Dell XPS laptop with SSD drive, 16GB RAM and i7 processor running Windows 8. It should be fast.

I'm doing heavy retouching often, 2-4 GB layered Photoshop files and sometimes for events processing a lot of files in Lightroom. And my computer feels kind of slow for both.

What do you have, where it's really fast in response? What should i focus on choosing a new computer, more memory, or faster processor? I'm going for a desktop now.

I'm using an older (2006) MacPro and it struggles some with even the basics. I'm using LR4 and CS6. I was looking to upgrade and was told that the graphics card was equally as important as the amount of RAM.

I may just go with the new MacPro and forgo trying to bring this one up to speed.

Best,

Steve
