I have been scouring laptops all week to find a suitable one for my course..

Basically i want a decent laptop that will last me my three years of university.. It has to be able to run Photoshop smoothly, and also be good for things like watching tele online..

This is one i have come across : http://www.laskys.com/computing/laptops_and_pdas/laptops/acer_as6930g_644g25.html

It is out of stock on this website, but the information is clearer on this website... I think i will be able to find it elsewhere, i just need a few opinions so that i can buy with confidence... What got my eye was the 4gb ram (DDR3), the 1gb graphics card, and the processor is of good quality..

Any opinions? Any suggestions? Budget around £550.. Thanks!

"Photoshop smoothly"

If you are loading up 12mp RAW pictures, in the hundreds, no reasonably priced laptop would suffice imo, although I have to ask, why do photo editing on a laptop screen???

If that 16" is wuxga then that laskys seems like a half decent deal.

Personally I'd get a £400 desktop (6-12gb i7 systems might be at this price come Christmas) which can be easily upgraded and save for a nice 24inch monitor which does the colour gamut you are after, compare any good tft to a laptop screen you'll see the benefit of proper colour representation.

Many a graphics designer producing stuff on laptops which when properly analysed on desktop screens look awful.

Well i do actually have a desktop at home, with a more than capable acer monitor... I could use that on it i suppose? I just think it will be a good choice to have a laptop for uni... As it is obviously portable. Do you not think photoshop will nt work well on the laptop? Its not exacly smooth on my desktop :/

What you want to compare then is photoshop benchmarks on systems similar to your desktop to the laptop(s) you are interested in, cumbersome I know but £500 is alot of money...

Cheers for all the advice :)

I've been looking all over for a WUXGA laptop, with decent specs at around £500.. Do you think it's possible?

That one seems like a good deal, but i don't think i'd trust the website..

Thanks again!
