Since you must lean so hard on the machine, let's get a great one.
There are very few other laptops that will do this well in the field.
I am looking for a laptop or whatever may be best for me. I own and operate a construction company which means i am on jobsites frequently where i need to be able to run my business from there. Also, I am an avid outdoor/wildlife photographer which i will also needs this laptop to be able to perform well in the field. Iusually take 1000-2000 pictures weekly which i edit or e-mail. My business is a small business now but is rapidly growing so i will need to be able to keep records on jobs as well as ordering material on line and maintaining personnel hours,payrates and paychecks.I know some of this will need to be handled by aftermarket software but that is why i am asking the pros for their reccommendations. I would like to keep my cost to around $1500 for the entire package hopefully.
