I’ve noticed cpu requirements for Photoshop CS4 is 1.8 GHz. My cpu is 1.73

Would PS CS4 abort install over this?

Close enough, although it is rather slow these days. More important is the rest of the system.

You can upgrade the cpu for not much. What are you using?.

It’s a Toshiba laptop running Vista Home Premium. So a cpu upgrade is not possible. The rest of the system is up to snuff.I have 2 GB of ram. The Intel 965 video takes 256 MB of that and runs Directx 10.

I just want to be sure the installer isn’t programmed to stop if it is 1.73 GHz.

No. Don’t let yourself confuse you by the marketing fluff. Any newer processor, regardless whether it’s a Celeron, Core Mobile, Core Duo or whatever should be just fine even if it doesn’t hit the clock speed mark precisely. At any rate – the CS$ installer, while not faster, is much safer than the one for CS3, so you will get proper warnings if something is wrong. Also perhaps simply wait for CS$ trials to arrive and give this a spin…

CS$? You still have time to put that right!

Forgot to let go of the shift key eh? Or was it a Freudian slip? 😉

Thanks Mylenium. I took it as a cutoff and didn’t want a bad surprise since I’m going for a download purchase.

I normally don’t purchase large software via download (only small utilities) since I simply like having a disc on hand in case of need, so I don’t know if Adobe does this, but in the past Microsoft has had a web link where you could go to have your computer analyzed to tell you in advance if it would work with a particular program (I think this was for WinXP before it came out)

But, like I said, I don’t know if Adobe has ever done this

The processor may indeed be faster than that. The binning process for speed selection only guarantees that the processor is at least that fast.
