I have a question that comes a bit unconventional and I apologize if it is a little off topic,
We need to buy computers (laptops because we have many power outages in Mexico) for web designers and programmers.
In all fairness, I wonder if the following configurations can work in good conditions:
Web designers does not 3D, they mainly use Photoshop, Fireworks and Dreamweaver type tools.
Idea of configuration: i5 + 15' (1920 * 1080) + 1Gb video card + 500Gb HDD + 23' external monitor + 8Gb memory
- For a web designer, is there really need 2 screens type 23 'or is it a luxury?
- Can it work in good conditions with the 15" and 23"?
Programmers working with ZendFramework (PHP), MySQL + webserver on their computer
Idea of configuration: i5 + 15' (1920 * 1080) + 1Gb video card + hard disk 500Gb HDD + external monitor 21' or 23' + 8Gb memory
- Is the configuration above is really a luxury (video card, 8 GB of memory) or not?
Thank you for your feedback as a webdesigner and / or webprogrammer.
