    Hey guys...

    I wanted to check in as a potential adopter of the Surface Pro 4. My primary concern is the speed and my purpose of the upgrade.

    Currently, I'm using the Asus Zenbook UX32v. I upgraded the ram on the system and changed the HDD to a SSD. The computer is almost 3 yrs old. As of recent, I've been pretty addicted to photography and have a DSLR which I shoot raw photos with. Due to this, I've installed Lightroom and Photoshop on this Asus notebook. As far as performance, the notebook seems to lag on Lightroom when importing and editing photos. Sometimes it might even give me an error stating that memory isn't enough.

    Would getting a Surface Pro 4 w/ i7 and 16gb + 256GB/512GB SSD be enough for Lightroom and Photoshop? I was considering the Surface Book (top model), but rather get something smaller and lighter. Also, I don't edit videos, so I'm guessing there's no need for a high end GPU.

    Some thoughts? Thanks

    Yes, the surface pro will do the job I think.
    It's a powerful machine, the only thing is that the surface doesn't have a GPU, if you don't need it then the surface will give you full satisfaction.

    Just hoping for less lag when processing photos.

    I am not sure.
    What is your Zenbook model?
