Hey guys!

I'm new around here and I really wanna try Affinity out.

But I'm not sure if it will perform well on my 12" MacBook, has anyone tried it out?

The specs:

1.2GHz dual-core Intel Core M processor (Turbo Boost to 2.6Ghz) | 8GB Ram | Intel HD Graphics 5300 | IPS Retina Display | 512GB SSD

Hi danevans,


We have one in the office - it's the base spec model and I tried Affinity Designer on it when it arrived... It runs Designer better than it runs most other 'non-trivial' applications I could run on it, and it was genuinely completely acceptable for designing on, within certain limits... The best way to see for yourself is just to visit the affinity.serif.com website and try the trial version for yourself :)


(Be slightly forewarned that right now the trial is still from version 1.4 and as such has a bug when exporting to PNG which can cause instability - this is fixed in the App Store version and we'll upload a new trial hopefully later today) :)
