Guys I have a question..
First off, I have a dell laptop that has a configuration of i7 3rd gen processor, 1gb ddr3 AMD graphics, 16gb ram (i guess 1333 only), and a 120gb intel 330 ssd.
One the ssd after I've installed all the apps/softwares that I want the remaining space is 50gb.
So here is the scenario and my question...
I have connected a external Hdd via Usb 3.0 and opened my .psd file which 700mb in size.
The problem is I find it slow when for example just moving from different tools using the keyboard shortcuts , the tool icon change so slow from one tool to another.
And moving just the layers up or down it takes seconds to react...
I thought specs wise im okay, that a 700mb .psd file will be easy for my laptop to handle?
Does my 16gb ram is not enough? I ask this because from the remaining 50gb space on my ssd it goes down after i've opened the .psd file and do some editing..
Is it slow also because Im working with it externally on my plugged external hdd?
what do you think can i do to improve my laptops performance?
