Hi everyone, I'm looking to get a new laptop/2-in-1 to replace my 2009 Dell Studio 15. I want to be able to use Photoshop Elements on it to work on RAW and JPEG files. I am currently taking photos with a Nikon D3300. I know this is a Surface forum, but I'm very strongly leaning towards a Surface Pro 4, so I feel I am close enough to having one to post on here. But just one road bump. My question is, what specs would be best for me. I know maxing out would be great, but I also want to be somewhat responsible and not break the bank. My main editing computer has 16gb RAM, i7 processor, and a GTX 760 TI. This is where I'll do the more intensive work flows and some video editing along with all my gaming. I'm currently between a SP4 and the new Dell XPS 12. The options are: SP4 with i5, 4gb RAM, and 128gb SSD. I'm not sure if this will be too under powered for my needs. Again, I believe the most intensive things I'll be doing at once are Photoshop Elements and probably Facebook open with it (I know, not very exciting, but may be well suited for this spec setup). SP4 with i5 8gb RAM, and 256gb SSD. Clearly, this will have no issues. But for my needs is it really necessary? I already have my photos on a dedicated external hard drive, so the extra space isn't a huge deal for me. And my itunes library is also on my main computer (2TB HDD on that). Dell XPS 12. This is more of a wild card. I actually like what I have read of this so far (though, some say the 16:9 screen is bad for a tablet, that I don't know much about, this will be my first tablet). I do like how the specs are basically the same on both versions: 12.5-inch Full HD touchscreen Intel Core m5-6Y54 8GB memory/128GB SSD or 12.5-inch 4K UHD touchscreen Intel Core m5-6Y54 8GB memory/256GB SSD The questions are: How is the m5 processor, I have no experience with them at all, but the 8gb of RAM may help that out some. And is 4k really needed on a screen that small? Right now my laptop is 1080p (like the first XPS 12 listed) and I believe it's a 15" screen and it looks pretty good (colors are pretty much faded now, but still very clear). All offer pen/stylus support, which is important for me, or at least I think it's cool to have. The Dell comes with the keyboard and a folio while the SP4 comes with the pen. The SP4 does have a very nice screen, no doubt about that. I'm not sure the color accuracy of the XPS 12 compared to the SP4, nobody is really reviewing the XPS 12 which is sort of weird since the XPS line seems to be pretty popular. Prices as of Microsoft store's President's Day Sale: SP4 i5/4gb RAM - $899 SP4 i5/8gb RAM - $1199 XPS 12 1080p - $899 XPS 12 4k - $1099 Really similar in price in terms of how the models for each go up in specs. I know the SP4 is on sale until the 27th, not sure about the XPS 12. If I can do 4gb RAM, the SP4 for $899 is an awesome deal (considering I'd still need to buy the keyboard, Photoshop Elements, and the warranty, but not all at once). Note, I'll also be using the newest version of Photoshop Elements.
