advice on a laptop that can run CS5

I want the cheapest laptop possible that can run adobe cs5 well. It will be used for business purposes and It needs to have a lifespan of 4-5 years and keep relatively up to date and able to edit/create media. I only have a maximum budget of £1000 so that rules out a macbook pro.

I want it to be a trusty provider so I am more inclined to go with Dell or Sony as apposed to acer, hp or toshiba as I want good support if something goes wrong.

I was thinking about a Dell precision M4500 but that is still abit pricey. Idealy I need something around the £600 mark, I do not know much about hardware but I need a good deal. I do not care about what it looks like as long as it runs things like dreamweaver, photoshop and web development stuff well.

Thanks!

Hi,

You need any laptop with minimum Intel i5 or prefably i7 with minmum 4gb Memory and any hard drive space that suits you (320GB or £500).

We repair alot of laptops and the only laptop that we hardly see for repairs are Acer and Dell.

So, I's probably pick one of them.

With any laptop that you want to last 4-5 years get an extended warranty that lasts 4-5 years no matter what brand you go with.
