I will be teaching Adobe Creative Suite 3 Premium ... using Dreamweaver + Photshop + Adobe Bridge at the same time; at other times using InDesign + Photoshop + Adobe Bridge at the same time. I'm a teacher at a private school. We are upgrading our computer lab for Grades 9+10 to produce the school website [www.myHVCA.org
-- currently done in GoLive 5] and also the school's yearbook [not scrapbooking ... based on design principles in Adobe Classroom in a Bookd ... Photoshop extractions + InDesign layers, etc.
Big question ... we are on the threshold of purchasing 25 new DELL computers ... in the OptiPlex lineup. What speed processor should I order -- dual core? Ghz? How much RAM should I have? What size LCD monitor should I purchase?
Web + Print Designers ... please tell me the minimum system I and my students will be able to work with, without frustration. Thank you very much!
