A friend of mine has an aging Macbook Pro from 2011 that can't even open Illustrator anymore.
I'm trying to convince her that it's a better investment for her career and business to let me build a PC for her. She is looking to start a business and career in fashion design, as she has just graduated from college in that major. Ideally I'd want to build her something very quiet and small.
She mainly works out of illustrator and photoshop.
Thing is, I don't know jack about workstation PCs.
I'm open to all suggestions as I'd like to learn!
Budget: ~$1,200 though that may change as I'm not certain what her limit is, but if she's willing to buy another Mac, my guess is her budget can go up.
Monitor and keyboard will be needed, and it's important to factor in the cost of buying all the software.
I'm fairly certain these are the specs on her laptop, though I'm guessing from the top of my head.
Intel Core i7 2.2ghz 2675QM
4 GB of 1333 MHz DDR3
500 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM)
