Am I understanding this correctly? That I should have a cheaper computer for cutter operation and that only. What about design software, wouldn't I need more ram

to run the software?

 too many great deals for under $100.      Where can I get a computer for under $100?

No, what you have now is plenty for vector graphic design. Inkscape is a free vector program you can download and give a try. It is a bit slow starting up, but once is running it runs great.

yep, that's the only issue that came from windows 10 or an update. now running these programs with only 2gb ram has caused some. that's the best  @Primal Decals and I can come up with. comp or programs lock up or shut dn , working with AI open, cut program open, with maybe more than 1 open, and possibly vector magic and a internet window open = boom , a lock down or shut down. Vinyl master definitely doesn't like having several documents/ work page open at a time. it constantly has a pop up coming up telling me it needs to close.

Not sure how it directly relates to this thread, but when I first started using a computer back in the 1990's I read a book by David Pogue (Macs for Dummies) which had all sorts of cool information about file hierarchies and organizing the contents of the Hard Drive, working inside various programs, and troubleshooting. One thing that was mentioned is FONTS have a bad tendency of causing system-wide issues (especially when the Font file is corrupted). I've never forgotten that advice, and one of the things that saved my computer from random crashes (Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters) was FontFirstAid that scanned and fixed (or quarantined) bad Font suitcases.

This is a Free utility for Windows (it says for up to Win98, but I was able to load it onto WinXP and Win7 machines)

ive always worried about getting something while dn loading fonts. when I'm adding fonts I usually make sure my anti virus is up to date or updated before dn loading.

I will doing as most have mentioned when I get my new laptop up and going, using it Only with the cutter , and using the comp I'm on right now for dn loading whatever I need off the web and what ever else I need
