Its has an integrated graphic card. Wondering whether is it up to the task of handling CS2?

I've run CS2 on a T60 before. Honestly? It works fine but the IBM/Lenovo screen is JUNK!!!!

I recommend an Acer or HP with similar specs. You'll get a much much better screen.

Graphic card has got nothing to do if you're running PS, unless you are rendering 3D graphics and such...

RAM is the one that is important... Not forgetting about have sufficient disk space...

The HP Pavilion dv4000's BrightView screen is fantastic.

I use an Acer. The sharpness is the best I've seen on any laptop. There's no noticeable color gradiation and it's an even color tone from edge to edge. Mine's 1680x1050 resolution.

For a standard 4:3 resolution screen, I don't know if Acer sells their travelmate series here in SG. Most of Acer's laptops are designed for watching movies, so it's widescreen. The Travelmate's tend to have the 4:3 ratio.

Hi, I think the T60 is stable enough to run Photoshop. They have different screens to choose from. Kindly check with the sales for more information. I am currently running on the T60P version, and have no issues to run Photoshop CS2.

If you are concerned on the colour, you will probably have to get a colour profile for the LCD.

Very reliable. :)
