I am going to be purchasing CorelDraw for a little t-shirt business. Does anyone have a recommendation for a desktop PC? I know the specs I need for storage and such, just looking for opinions.
Corel's pretty easy on the requirements, but I could recommend picking up an ASUS RoG (Republic of Gaming) Laptop. They are really well priced and have really good hardware including dedicated video card etc. Get a laptop docker and it's a good setup. Probably find one with an i7 with 6-8 gig video card with up to 16 gigs ram for under 1k on Amazon. Just if you get one with a solid state dual drive make sure you don't load up your OS C: drive w/ Software, redirect them all to D drive.
Corel should be more realistic and tougher on published requirements or at least tell users the limitations . In the U.S. the small cost of and additional 16 GB of RAM, an SSD and a 8GB video card is made back in improved performance.
I get that the hobbyist does not want to spend but making money takes money and an additional $400 on a system is nothing.
I run an SSD and a secondary hard drive with a server for archived files. When is hear 2GB of RAM requirement I cringe, that's a joke and the user with less than 16 really pays the price.
