What PC should A Graphic Designer Use



I really don’t have the exact answer to this but I can tell you what PC I work with and it’s been good so far. I usually work with a laptop (when I’m not at home or at the office) and a desktop. When I needed to get a new desktop I did my research and my options were either a Samsung or Lenovo brand – I ended up with a Samsung 21.5” ATIV One 5 Touchscreen All-in-One PC 1TB HDD DP500A2D. This isn’t a product/brand review so I’d be brief! I’ve been using this for about a year now and it cost about N160,000 (almost $800) at the time, I really haven’t had a lot issues with it and when I do there’s a Samsung online support center that helps. I have all my graphic editing software’s installed – CorelDraw, Adobe Suite etc and I’d say it responds fast unlike my laptop that can take up to 10 minutes to open heavy files. Here are the specifications below:


Operating System – Windows 8 (64-bit)
