Buyers remorse?

Hello,
After doing tons of research, I placed an order for this computer last night. Now I'm concerned it it won't hold up to my expectations. Can any pro out there tell me if these specs will hold up for my needs, which ar primarily t-shirt and advertising design. No video editing. Also, should I have upgraded to higher res screen? Initially I figured I'd get a moniter down the road...but now I'm second guessing myself. Any input would be highly appreciated. I still have a small window left to make any changes. Paid about $1100 before tax.

Should be fine. Good quad core, decent graphics card. Maybe you paid a little too much, but nothing pops out as poorly specced.

I was getting that nudging feeling price wasn't best I could do, but I will get $100 cash back from my visa rewards for shopping through their portal. Hopefully I'll be happy with it, huge purhase for me. Thank you, yialanliu. Feel a little better already.

plenty good for your needs , overkill , should do for a few years . Screen is fine , you can always run a GOOD monitor alongside the laptop for colour critical work .
