Laptop Specification Requirements(Intel Celeron 6305)

I'd like a new lap top which could run Trados Studio.

While browsing several websites, I found one model.

Its specifications are as follow:

Model: Samsung 550XDA-K14A

Intel Celeron Processor 6305

8GB DDR4 Memory(upgradable)

128GB NVMe SSD(upgradable)

I know it won't be the optimal specifications, but the price is so tempting.

Could anyone tell me if this model would be enough for me?

  • is a good person to check these things as I know he looks at specifications in some detail.  Perhaps he has a view on it?

    In my own opinion, I would not do it.  I'd want more than 8Gb RAM and also a larger SSD even though you could plug in an external drive for storage.  I don't like working with too many devices as I prefer to have everything handy when travelling and I also don't trust the cloud to be available to me when needed.  So I'd look for 1Tb at least and 16Gb RAM at least.  But it's definitely down to personal preference and as Oana says, what you feel you need.

    Thanks for calling me to this topic.

    In my opinion trying to run Studio on a Celeron processor will be a great disapointment. In the very past I used to have a Sony Vaio mini-PC with an Atom processor. Studio didn't work well there. And Windows 10/11 will kill the performance additionaly.

    My recommendation would be Intel i5 or above. 8 GB RAM is not much, but should suffice, if you will use the system just for translation and not open dozens on windows in your browser. SSD ist fine, 128 GB not enough. 256 GB should be there, as the OS and programs will take at leas 100 GB. Windows alone must have at least 10 GB empty disk space, otherwise the system does not work properly.
