shopping for a new desktop... only really looked at the apple imac and dells.
have done some reading and asking around.
pretty much narrowed down to the dell xps 420 for $2.3k with the following specs
Processor: 2.4GHz Core 2 Quad Q6600
Memory: 4GB DDR2 800MHz
Graphics: ATI 2600 (256MB)
i've used photoshop on a few desktops (including imac - dun get me wrong, not taking a dig at apple users..) and find that most of them are quite laggy. so will this do for photoshop? is it more enough? anything else (if possible) i can scrimp on? and i'm not a gamer, so photoshop/bridge/camera raw will probably be the most resource-extensive programs i will run.
