Retired Guy New Laptop



I am still learning about computers. I am retired as my topic is titled. I use my current laptop for multimedia and research. I would like to invest in top of the line PhotoShop software and a new laptop that can run it with ease. I will be needing a printer also. I have grandchildren so you should understand why I am wanting to buy and learn some PhotoShop skills. I would prefer a large laptop over a desktop because of media use during travel. Can anyone suggest the best 17" laptop, PhotoShop Software, printer, and paper so I can preserve memories and learn some tech skills? Any advice is welcomed.

Sounds like what is happening to you is what happened to my father.  He fell in photography and now takes thousands of pictures a year. 


As far as software goes I would look to either Adobe Photoshop Lightroom or CorelDraw.  Both are outstanding photo editing software.


For a laptop I would suggest looking into a 17" as the larger screen will be more rewarding for photo editing.

I would also suggest getting what Best Buy terms as a Gaming Laptop. Not that you need it for gaming but the Gaming Laptops will be built more for graphics and processing power. Which will help a lot with your photos.


Youl wil also want to make sure it has enough storage space for your photos. It is a trend of laptops to go towards SSD drives, whihc are fast but tend to be smaller.  The one I have linked below has really decent specs all around. 


The one linked below I think would be a good fit.
