Hello Everyone. I am getting into drawing manga and other digital art and I was wondering if the specs of my laptop are good for starting out with detailed drawings. My laptop is a Lenovo G50 so it's not a powerhouse, but it's definitely pretty new.

Specs:

CPU: Intel Core i3-4030 1.9GHz.
RAM: 4GB.
Monitor Display: 1366x768.
Graphics: Intel integrated graphics w/ approx. 2121MB total memory.
Hard Drive: 1Tb of storage.
DirectX 12.

I know this is not ideal for pros, but I'm not a pro and I'm wondering if this would run Sketchbook Pro or Clip Studio Paint (aka: Manga Studio) decently.

Thank you,
Jake.

Ok. What about the Intel integrated graphics? it sucks for things like playing most games, but would it be sufficient enough to smoothly use the programs I mentioned?

Thank you,
Jake
