Composer Recommended Hardware

New Contributor

Any recommendations for hardware specs to optimize Composer? Have been using a Mini, but it is painfully slow to capture changes and create packages. Looking to switch to a Mac Pro or MacBook Pro. Any particular specs we should get?

What spec Mini? Spindle or SSD? At least 8gb RAM ?

You could do a lot with a MacPro, such as visualize a test environment, but its overkill for "Composing"

We use an 2013 MacBook pro for imaging, OS Composing and testing adobe installations. As @lkrasno said it's a little overkill, the other option being a VM? For 'general' composing though we either try to script an install or use production devices, but having the portability of the MacBook Pro can be very handy.

Mini has 2.6GHz CPU, 8GB memory and 1TB Spindle drive. I am guessing the non-SSD drive is the cause of the slowness.
