[COLOR=#000000][FONT=verdana]I am in search of a laptop for web design/development.
Some of the programs I use and have open all day
[*]Adobe Premier Elements
[/LIST]What I’m looking for:
Fairly fast, I run a core i7 @ 2.93GHz desktop and it would need to be similar in terms of performance.
About 6 gigs of memory.
Looks not that important.
A good sized screen from 15" up.
Battery life not that important.
[/LIST]I have been looking at this Acer laptop and it seems to tick all the boxes but I’ve never used an acer before and think of them as cheap? Are they good?
Anywho, any advice is greatly appreciated.
Edit; Just found this Lenovo from another thread but it’s an i5, will this be slower?[/FONT][/COLOR]
I would recommend you would get a video-gaming laptop, these usually have the most powerful hardware…a recommendation…I would go for a dual video output, HDMI+VGA/DVI at least…if you want to start design, you will quickly learn you will need more than one screen to do your business on. 8 Gb of RAM is almost nothing, when it comes to money, and a dual HDD, one SSD for fast windows start-up and load times, and a second 7200 RPM HDD, 1TB for storage. DELL had a 17" laptop ~1000 USD good for this kind of job…don’t remember the model though…
At the risk of starting an age old debate, would you consider moving to Mac? I made the change late last year after more than a developing on a PC (to a Macbook Air, which contrary to popular believe IS powerful enough for dev work) and wouldn’t ever look back.
I think MacBook Pro will be the right choice.
It is available on various screen sizes varying from 13 to 17 inches.
i7 Core. Memory expendable upto 8 GB.
Great speed and high reliability of hardware
Intel HD Graphics 3000
AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB GDDR5
I have experienced with VAIO VPCEN33, Its a weird machine. I think they have halt the production for this model.
I would recommend you not to go for this product if the product is still available in the market
