    Hey, so I do Photoshop and I am thinking of getting a Surface 2, I would like to be able to go out, take my photos and then sit down somewhere and edit them! Nice and simple!
    But I would really like to know will the Surface 2 ( NOT PRO ) run Photoshop?

    PS: I'm not getting Pro as I do not have that kind of money.

    Not the full version of PhotoShop. That's an x86 program.

    So I would need to get the Surface Pro 2?

    What about the Surface Pro? I do not need to get the "2" right?

    The surface pro and the pro 2 can run photoshop because they can have x86 application.

    So if you get a Surface Pro, it will run photoshop.

    If you get the Surface RT, or Surface 2 (the non x86 versions), you can still use the Adobe Photoshop Express app (free). There are plenty of non-PS apps that are good for quick editing on your tablet. I am a Photoshop/DSLR photographer myself, but when I travel, I use FOTOR on my Surface RT. Great for non-professional edits.

    The surface pro only has 4gb of ram. If you use Photoshop a lot you will find your device running Photoshop slowly.

    To me, it does not make sense to run PhotoShop on any tablet.

    Or you could save $500 and remote desktop or buy a notebook instead. I think the pro with a 1.5 GHz processor isn't worth it.

    I also like Fotor. It is clean and easy to use.

    I've used PhotoShop on many devices with 2gb of Ram without problems

    If the pro 2 is too expensive, the pro 1 is still a great choice.
