I'm getting a new computer for travelling/photoshop

LoomdunLoomdun Registered User regular
Hello, i'm a cooky crazy artist and I need advice on a laptop. I need to get one and basically the equivalence of a good laptop for photoshop is a pretty good laptop for running games. I'll need good ram, a fairly good graphics card, and whatever that third thing is, some memory? Well if its good ram and graphics card i'm pretty sure memory wont be a issue.

Anyways uh, Apple has a super duper expenive mac pro laptop thats like super sexy 17 inches 2,500$. And uh, i'm trying to kind of lower the price possibly if anyone here can recommend anything.

    Just go to Dell's or HP's websites. You can probably find twenty laptops that will work just fine.

    RAM stands for Random Access Memory so RAM and memory are the same thing. The third thing you are looking for is probably the CPU, i.e. the brain on the computer.

    Depending on exactly what kind of gaming you are expecting you should probably be looking at a $1000 or so budget.

    [edit] This might be suitable: Acer Aspire AS8730G-6681 Intel Core 2 Duo T6500(2.10GHz) 18.4" 4GB Memory 250GB HDD DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 9600M .

    It's 800 on newegg but you might do better shopping around.
