PC for Photographers: The Ultimate Guide. A debate that live on for years to come, but there is really only one that is best for. PC for Photographers: The Ultimate Guide. A debate that live on for years to come, but there is really only one that is. Luckily, since in 2007 I personally still use Apple's crummiest laptop from 2003, anything you can get from Apple today is more than enough for photography and web design and everything. Just be sure to get all the RAM and the biggest optional hard drive you can, and be happy! Processor speed hasn't been relevant for a long time. I didn’t want to open this up with something that can descend into arguments. HP Spectre x360 15. The best photo editor laptop overall. CPU: Intel Core i7-8565U GPU: Nvidia.

How you choose a model computer depends entirely on your priorities of the features of the different devices. Every model makes compromises in order to promote its strengths.


The MacBook Air's strength above all others is portability.In your post yo don't mention size, weight, or portability as something you would consider the Air to achieve. Your priorities, as explained, center around the primary applicability to your interest, being photography. Whether that includes a desire to carry the computer when actually taking photographs, is the only question here. As Chris indicated, for every other possible reason the MacBook Pro in the 15' or 17' size would seem to be more seriously considered here, as they possess a greater and more capable graphic card, screen size and resolution, which seems to be your primary desire.


Would the MacBook Air suffice? Possibly, but I still think the larger Pro models would be better.

Something else to consider. Some MacBook owners have been reporting some problems with the integrated video card/drivers that the MacBook Air & MacBook Pro 13' have with Adobe Photoshop. Whether similar sounding problems that I have had with PS have anything to do with this, is something I suspect. I have every confidence that these issues will be resolved. In the meantime, I would think that a new user would take this into consideration.
