Laptop for photo editing
Aug 11, 2013

I am looking for a laptop that I can use Photoshop Elements 7 and Photoshop CS2 and it not run slow. I am wanting to find a laptop under $500 so I'm looking at refurbished but if anyone has any other ideas, I would appreciate the help. I'm hoping to start getting into photography more and hopefully do some crafty stuff on Etsy as well so I need a new laptop but do not need really high-end. Here is a laptop I'm looking at getting: Lenovo IdeaPad U510 refurbished, Intel® Core™ i5-3337U processor (2 cores, 1.80GHz, 3MB cache), Intel® HD Graphics 4000, 8 GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM 1600MHz SODIMM Memory, 1024GB (1TB, 5400RPM and 24GB Solid State) Serial ATA Hard Drives.  Would this be a good laptop for these programs?  I thought since it has a 8gb and a big hard drive it would do pretty well, but I'm not sure since it only has 2 cores.
