can anyone tell me the minimum hardware requirements (pc most likely, but i'd be grateful for advice from you mac-users, too) that you need for high-end print work?
my client needs me to find them some pcs to help set up a temporaryoffice (see http://www.graphicdesignforum.com/?f=8&m=35896) to start work on a magazine - all the bells and whistles. but i'm acreative - not i.t. the only computers i've used in the past 3 years have been just barely able to cut the mustard and, honestly, i have no interest in this aspect of business. i really just want to be able to sit down and use them, not put them together.
so, i guess i'm asking for another wishlist. EDUCATE ME PLEASE!we already have the cs suite, so we're good for software. i just need a kick-ass hardware wishlist - i'm talking everything: processors, ram, graphics cards, printers, monitors, scanners- i need to know everything. in fact, i need to know what i need to know.
and talk to me like i'm slow....because i am.
THANK-YOU!!! this information could make or break the bitchinist gig i ever had. you'll ALL be on my xmas card list.
