Probably not. I've done more reading on Chromebook and google really does want us ONLY using the cloud. And I quoteI got dual cores laptop computers running Windows Vista.
What's needed for 2D & 3D photo- and video editing.
Size screen, will Intel i3, i5 be enough, how much Ram, HDD, etc.
Can chromebook do the job?
For that, you can read... and we will take over your whole computing experience so you never have to look at Windows or Mac again, so you never have to use anything other than google and google apps, again. So... what editing tools would you use? Picasa? That's just not anywhere near good enough. Great for mums and dads wanting to share with Aunty Jean but for serious editing, its rubbish.Nothing but the web.
Chromebooks are built and optimized for the web, where you already spend most of your computing time. So you get a faster, simpler and more secure experience without all the headaches of ordinary computers.
How do you find the 13" for photo editing with Photoshop and/or Lightroom and/or Aperture?It really depends on your budget. I like my 13" Macbook (although if I bought today I'd go for a new i5 or i7 powered 15" Macbook Pro). It's fast and I can run both the MacOS and Windows natively if I like.
Definitely not. OSX (and Ubuntu for that matter) seem to address the gfx differently to Windows. So, for example, on this little netbook I am using at the moment, I run Windows 7 and find the gfx absolutely awful but same netbook running Ubuntu and its fine. I can even do some minimal gfx editing, which is stymied only by the screen size. 10" really is a bit tiny. I few weeks back I actually bought a 15" laptop and took it back because it was just hideous. If I could have installed Ubuntu on that I would have kept it, but its system was partly built into ROM I guess and it just would not let meSue would you downsize from Apple to Windows 13" notebook? (with i5)
