    Default laptop spec

    hiya guys, i'm in the market for some new kit, got my eye on a couple of lens' and a laptop.

    what spec are your laptops? i was looking in the 2gb ram, 2ghz cpu ad about 250gb hd range.. OS is as yet undetermined - but since i've never used a Mac before i'd like to avoid it..

    any suggestions?

    If you are using the laptop for imaging then a good amount of ram is needed. IMO the important factors are ranked from:
    1.RAM
    2.CPU
    3.GPU
    4.HD

    My question as well. How about the screen? Is it good for photoediting?

    Why have you got such a small hard drive?

    The other investment you need is a portable photoprinter and you are set!! (plus a white balance card) (and...a few new lenses...and a Mark III)




    Have a question, do laptops ever come with two separate hard drives?

    under no illusion that the screen will be rubbish for getting true color on.. somethig i will just have to bear with when i'm on the road.. lol - i thought 250gb was huge! i suppose the plan will be to transfer the RAW images to an external hd once i've processed them. or start a DVD catalogue of events.. or both for redundancy.

    haha.. aye.. more lenses.. portable photo printers are cheap - not convinced i need a MkIII just yet hehe.. perhaps when i get the front cover of next years AE programme hahahahaha

    since i've been in the uk, every time i've bought a computer, i would just buy a copy of pc advisor, read the last 10-15 pages or so to get their recommended machines for my price range and gone with that. no problems so far, those guys know what they're talking about.

    i hope u didnt get a glossy screen, u will kick yourself for not thinking about it, they are quite literally the worst thing, why companies do this idk, but its obviously going to move around a lot in different light settings and the glare will piss you off, just a tip.
