I've just bought Affinity Photo yesterday (mainly to jump off the Adobe subscription bandwagon).
I'm considering to buy a new "laptop" - in quotes, because the Surface Book tingles my fancy by far the most. I'm peeking for the smalles model, the i5 with 128GB SSD (96GB free as I've seen in a electro market yesterday) with no dedicated GPU, but comes with the integrated Intel HD Graphics 520. The display has a resolution of 3000x2000.
I wonder if two things would work:
- does Affinity Photo it scale nicely? I've heard about problems with Windows software who did not scale good.
- does Affinity Photo use a dedicated GPU that much, that it would make no sense to buy such a device?
I would wonder about the latter one as a lot of Apple MacBooks also come with integrated GPUs (even though, they do use the faster IRIS graphics).
Maybe someone here uses a Surface Book with this configuration with Affinity Photo and could give me a hint.
Many thanks in advance!
