Can a laptop that is reasonably outfitted-600-950 MHZ with decent RAM 192-256, b e used for manipulating images through photoshop for out put to either an Epson 2000P and/or an Epson fitted with the B/W inks and special drivers made availabl e by Cone Editons and others?
I have used a laptop for developing web and internal presentations of student wo rk, so I know a laptop will work for some things. But te unit I will be using wi ll not be tasked exclusively to my photogaphic endeavors. It will be loaded with MS office,etc. It's the laptop monitor I question. Will it be sufficient for careful manipulati ons? I will be supplied with some sort of Gateway laptop if I opt for it. If a deskto p is offered it will be a Gateway with Gateway brand monitor. I know that an Apple G4 with an Apple or a La Cie monitor is the better alternat ive, but the computer gurus at my school are wedded to the cow boxes. Thanks in advance. Bob
