I am looking to purchase the creative suite due to illustration and graphic design work. What type of computer or laptop would be compatible for these packages in regards to memory, pixel resolution and hard drive?
It really depends on what kind of illustrations you want to create.Most current, entry level laptop / desktop configurations will work. Check the requirements page for OS limitations.
Each application within CreativeCloud (or CreativeSuite) may have a slightly different requirement.
If you're getting CreativeCloud for web illustrations, you should be well covered.
