Thanks guys

So i think most likely i will end up getting the free programs which will be slightly an annoyance, as it would be good to have the artwork in my native programs but if its just too pricey i will have to.

You guys have discussed a lot here but im not clear on the conclusion - so can I or can't I essentially 'sub-let' an adobe license from a friend say by using their "second computer usage"?

Also are there any specific computers or macs you would recommend up to £1200? Or can you give me specific recomended specs?
please see below
On how many computers can I use my Creative Cloud subscription?

You can install Creative Cloud applications on multiple computers, regardless of operating system.
You can activate Creative Cloud on up to two computers.
You can use the software on one computer at a time.

Again though, does this assume it is the same person using both of those creative cloud activations? Because thats not the situation i am proposing here

Thanks for these- Im taking a look at these and various other options, including the Dell XPS (or precision as it is known)
Not sure how this one fairs up for graphic designers or if anyone else uses it but it seems quite good and has quite good colour gamut on the screen.

Also, it seems the size of hard drive is one way to bring price down.

Would 256gb be sufficent for creative cloud applications and work? Or would you need say 512 as the neccessary minimum?

This is pretty damn good

Depends what you're doing - if you're doing large format photographs or the likes - video editing, or 3D etc. incl animation etc. - then you're going to use up that space pretty quick.

But then again - that's what external drives and cloud storage is for...

"You" this must be the person who has bought the licence, not a friend.

so to your question, the answer is NO you can not use it.

Well, for graphic designer i will recommend this https://www.laptopoutlet.co.uk/leno...ram-256gb-ssd-windows-10-home-80yl00kpuk.html because i am using it and till now everything working fine. I am using it from last 6 months. I am also a graphic designer that's why i can understand about it very much.
