My 7 year old Dell XPS (XP SP3,3.2GHz, 2GB RAM) is showing its age and has recently suffered what appears to be a ZeroAccess rootkit virus infection which is proving very problematic to fix.
I had been planning to postpone a new purchase, but perhaps this is the time.
What are the generally accepted requirements for PS and DigitalPro 6 these days? I see Windows 7 Pro 64 bit mentioned elsewhere, what about RAM, CPU etc. Drivers for old stuff like a Coolscan IV?
Since the machine is also general purpose so I need a replacement in fairly short order so I'm leaning towards a Dell box. It seems that there is still a real computer store in NJ (www.microcenter.com) with actual inventory. For example a Dell Inspiron 620 (in stock) $630
Intel® Core i5-2320
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)
8GB DDR3-1333 RAM
1TB 7,200RPM Hard Drive
16x DVD±RW Drive
8-in-1 Media Card Reader
Intel® HD Graphics 2000
Dell Wireless 1502 802.11 Wireless
Display Not Included
TIA for your comments!
