Hi all willing helpers Smile I have to get a new laptop Tongue
Im running ps5 and taking raw images, I have had a little look on the old tinterweb and would like to know what sort of laptops you are using, speck wise should I be looking at 4gb or more memory, 500gb harddrive i do have a external one for backup, (the next bits im getting the blonde card out) separate graphics card/memory thingys, i3, i5, i7 processor, screens led backlit ? Tongue its all getting a bit head scratching now.
I have nipped in a couple of shops one of which said if you get a smaller camera or use your phone you dont need a laptop ! wow I didnt stay there very long.
Money wise 600 ish.
Hope you can help/ advise me Grin

I bought a Toshiba not long ago, with an i5 processor, 600gb RAM and 750gb HDD. It flies and I hardly ever use the desktop now. That cost me just less than 700 but you should be able to get something similar for 600 now.

Mine has a shiny screen, which a lot of people hate, but I've rarely found to be an issue.

Have fun.

Sounds good enough to me where you also find that most are 64bit Win 7 these days.

This looks like a cracker! 719.98 but when you get 101 Vat back on it brings it down to 619. Blu-Ray, 17.3", 8gb Ram, dedicated graphics chip and an i5. If I had 600 to spend on a laptop, this would be the one for me Smile
