Plenty of Power for Your Creative Software

You rely on a suite of software to help bring your ideas to life. Intel also works closely with developers to help them design features that leverage Intel® technologies, so the creative software you rely on—including Adobe After Effects*, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom—performs at its best.

Endless Options for Creative Expression

Graphic Design and Illustration

Whether you’re drawing to relax on the weekend or working on a high-profile campaign, you need a computer for designers that turns your creative vision into reality. When choosing the best computer for graphic design, the key is finding the right device type for the creative tools you use.

Draw digital sketches to share with clients using a stylus-enabled 2-in-1 laptop for drawing. Create layouts and illustrations on the go, then transfer them to your desktop or workstation for refinement back at the office.

Photo Editing

Bring your vision to life in crisp, colorful detail. Computers for photography should provide a high-resolution display and precise color accuracy. You’ll also need high performance to run your favorite photo editing tools.

Share your portfolio during client meetings or upload photos for social sharing with a laptop or 2-in-1. Edit photos in the field or share digital proofs with clients on-site. Complete your most complex photo editing jobs and get the storage you need for large photo files on a desktop or workstation.

Video Editing

Create everything from short social media clips to slick, prime-time commercials. When choosing a computer for video editing, you need hardware that provides the performance, resolution, and color accuracy to produce stunning results—without bogging you down to render.

Stream video content on the go and edit clips for posting on social media with a laptop or 2-in-1. Upload footage and play it back on location for director review. Produce dramatic 4K video with stunning detail and color accuracy on a video editing desktop. Or choose a workstation for the ultimate rendering speed and professional-level performance.

3D Animation

Motion is your thing, from making simple characters dance to building entire 3D worlds for immersive gaming experiences. Your technology needs to keep pace as you move through every step of the process, providing plenty of power for rendering large files and a high-res, color-accurate display.

Brainstorm character ideas using a 2-in-1 laptop with stylus support. Take your laptop with you to manipulate drawings anywhere, at any time. Render 3D models or add special effects to film and video projects using a desktop or workstation offering professional-level performance for high-profile projects.

Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Modeling

Vision and precision are the foundation of your architectural designs. You need a bevy of tools for sketching ideas, developing 3D presentations for clients, and drawing up building plans to exact specifications. Flexibility and power are key.

Use a 2-in-1 laptop with stylus support for sketching out design ideas. Run through CAD/CAM drawings on a laptop or 2-in-1 during meetings. For complex 3D modeling and rendering, use a desktop or workstation to get client-ready results in a timely manner.

Music and Audio Production

From recording an independent music release to adding sound effects to Hollywood movies, the technology options for audio production are vast. You’ll need enough performance to run all the recording, editing, and engineering tools you rely on.

Choose a laptop or 2-in-1 for audio production to take your work with you. Record song ideas while away from the studio and upload field recordings to your favorite sharing site. Layer in electronic sounds during a gig or apply special effects to video while on location. Mix vocals with computer-generated audio or record direct to several channels with desktop performance. Opt for a workstation to score a full-length feature film or master a highly produced pop record.

5WPA3 Wi-Fi security features: The Wi-Fi Alliance industry consortium will certify Wi-Fi 6 products for compliance with the IEEE 802.11 ax standard and will require WPA3 security certification as a prerequisite to ensure the latest in Wi-Fi security features. WPA3 simplified passwords: WPA3 uses Simultaneous Authentication of Equals (SAE) to replace the preshared key (PSK) exchange protocol used by WPA2. SAE more securely handles initial key exchange and uses forward secrecy, which makes it more resistant to offline decryption attacks and provides stronger password-based authentication. WPA3 enhanced protection: Additional network protection comes from the equivalent of 192-bit cryptographic strength (across an 802.11ax network) and is superior to the 128-bit AES encryption utilized with WPA2.
