HI all, I have been shopping around for a new laptop for designing and showing work in Touch. I need a laptop because I need to work in different locations a lot, so lugging a shuttle is not a good fit.
I’m going to be short of money for the next year or two as I’ve become a full-time student so price matters - however, I’m not above starving myself and family for a few more frames per second (sad, isn’t it?)
So I’m going to start a thread on monster laptops.
I’m biased towards 17" screens at 1920 x 1080 for designing with Touch. I am tempted by the 15" 1920 x 1080 ones appearing now, but I’m concerned that my old eyes might not be able to see the small print in parameter boxes etc. I’ll check some out in a showroom before I make the big decision.
I’m going for core i7 and big graphics card 1GB - Nvidia (ATI and touch are a bit hit and miss)
I’ll add to this thread as I go along. Please pitch in if you have experience of any of these or other candidate machines…
