    hi all! it's a question to all laptop users - do you feel inconvenient
    to work in photoshop while using a laptop with a graphic card
    which uses computer's RAM memory? Is it really a big deal in
    that type of work? or only the difference is noticeable in games?

    please answer me quick :eek:)

    best wishes,

    I've got a P4 2GHz laptop, and photosop works well on it... even CS.

    Hard to judge levels/colour accurately on LCD/TFT, but for most purposes
    it's fine. Carry a mouse with you for the precise work!

    For very basic, non-critical PS work, my Toshiba 3.4GHz/2GB RAM, shared 128MB
    vid-RAM works fine, even with limited HDD real estate.

    As others have stated, the monitor is probably the weakest link, but then I
    just send the images to the workstations for output.
