I recently got myself a Toshiba laptop with I5 processor and 6gb RAM. It happily handles PS and LR together.

Ian, Which do you prefer the laptop with the smaller screen or the PC?

If you don't move around a lot...PC with loads of room for upgrades. Oh, and a big screen.

Ditto. For me a pair of 27" monitors is an absolute "must". I just don't know how anyone does any serious photographic processing on a laptop.

I think this would be my problem, I could not work with a 15" screen. Another problem for me is on a laptop the screen always looks brighter or darker according to the viewing angle and it is hard to know which is correct.

It dosn't have to be 15", 17" screens are available and mine sports a massive 18." screen. And you can always zoom in.

But its really just the same with a desktop, you move the screen or your chair and you can't be sure if your new viewing angle is "correct".
I tend to find that the screen naturally sits at a similar angle each time I use it and modern screens have quite a wide viewing angle before you see a colour shift.

Not if you have a decent IPS panel which many ePzers have.

You can get IPS on a laptop - especially those nice Macbook Pros Wink

Do you honestly think that the legions of sports/news photographers carry twin 27" monitors around with them when covering games/stories?

To me serious photography is all about getting the shots away as fast as possible from anywhere I'm asked to go.

Paul look for something with a 17 inch screen, at least 6gb RAM, i5 processor or higher, Win 7

Likes of these.

I really like this, fast with fabulous spec and option to upgrade to Win 8 for just 15 download.
