Minimum hardware for a laptop for design ?

Hello everyone. Now I find myself in the search for a laptop to do design work (not so demanding but maybe in the future yes). When I chose the pieces for the pc I look for reviews and comments. Since then I outdated in hardware and much more in laptops.

What hardware would be just and necessary to accomplish these jobs. I've been testing on an i3 with integrated intel video and the performance is good. But was mounting figures, letters and a picture. No effects or filters. Which I must see before buying one.

Regards.

Edit : As for the price, let's say it's between $ 400-600.

It's enough for your needs. But what programs are you going to use?

Its for the work. Illustrator and maybe Photoshop too. So far the performance is fine.

You may need to upgrade your ram to 8GB as much as possible. Does it come with a dedicated GPU?

There was another of the same series with integrated Nvidia, but it was beyond my budget. This model comes with the Intel HD 5500. Sometimes I feel the performance drop when there are more than two programs open but it stabilizes quickly.
To get an increase in performance would be to increase the RAM only since the video is in the list of compatible so I think that is enough in that aspect.

Running the RAM in dual channel mode significantly increases the performance of the GPU from Intel. I'm just suggesting to get the variant with NVIDIA chips because the CUDA cores will be helpful in Adobe After Effects.

Hi,
Sluggishness comes from being a dual core processor.
