She is going to college to study graphic design and this dude at the school said she needed what is below for next August.  

“So I emailed the college and asked them exactly what the requirements for the Mac I need are, they said this:
MacBook Pro 15″
8Gb Ram
2.4 Ghz processor
Ethernet adaptor

Applications used over 2 years:

Photoshop for sure, I assume finalcut will be used. the courses really just keep saying general things, traditional animation techniques will be explored, learning about HTML and CSS, and javascript. ToonBoom software (Level 1) and Macromedia Flash, Adobe AfterEffects and DVD Studio Pro

Students will also develop a thorough understanding of Adobe AfterEffects as used in the video editing process including the importing and exporting of video clips from Final Cut Pro.  They will also learn the basics of video manipulation and special effects generation.
