      I'd say go with the highest spec you can afford. The graphics card is worth looking at if you are going to be editing video too, the more memory the better. Adobe CC apps also leverage the power of the graphics cards and their onboard memory too.

      I hope this helps you out.

        Yah, Adobe programs try to leverage the graphics card, but the attempt is often problematic. I have GPU enhance shut off on all my Adobe programs.
        Any new computer will run Creative Cloud. If it's a laptop, make sure you max out your ram (at least 16 gigs more if it'll take it) as laptops often do not have upgradable ram. Get the largest SSD you can afford. 500 gigs is NOT enough. Processor speed is important as well. Check that it has or will accept the peripheral stuff you need. I'd highly suggest getting an outboard drive to use as a backup storage device. Keep that up to date. I've been doing this 20 years and have never had to revert to a backup as often as I have in the last 4 years. All the software is buggy beyond belief and a bad update can ruin your day.
