I need help on find a powerful yet not too expensive laptop (1500 -2500). I am a student studying interactive design and game development (web design and game design) and I've had several problems with my laptop
(volume loss and crashing) and for that reason I am looking to sale it
to buy a new computer with more power. I'm considering
purchasing a MacBook Pro but I don't know how well web and 3d design software perform on Macs. If I don't purchase a MacBook Pro then I was considering purchasing a highend laptop. Are Macs ideal for
interactive design or should I stick with a notebook?
Here is my currently laptops specs:
HP Pavilion zv6000
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ 1.79 GHz processor
1.5GB of PC2700 RAM
256MB ATI Xpress 200m video
8x Dual Layer DVD+/-RW drive
15.4" wide screen (BrightView)
100 GB 4200 RPM Hard Drive
Windows XP Home
8 cell battery
