Laptop For 3d Applications

by saktheon / November 27, 2011 4:53 PM PST

Dear Friends,

I am looking for my Workstation replacement Laptop, which can handle
software's like 3ds max 2012 & other softwares (3D Games as well)
without any compromise. Budget is not a limit. The laptop shouldn't get
outdated for the next 5 years.

I googled some Laptops which can meet my needs, but they all have their Pros as well as cons per customer's feedback.

The list follows,

1. ASUS G74SX
2. HP EliteBook 8760w Mobile Workstation
3. Alienware M17x 3D
4. Origin EON 17
5. Origin EON 17-S

Please someone suggest me to get the right one.

Thanks in advance.

Sakthi

You won't be able to find a laptop that doesn't have negative customer feebacks. The best you can hope for: a lot of positive feedbacks. And you won't be able to find a laptop that everybody agrees on as having only pro's and no cons at all. Customer feedback (if reliable and not based on the small percentage of devices that have some defect) only prevents you from buying something that's obviously wrong for your needs.

I assume that all models you selected can handle the software you specified. So (given that requirement) all are right for you.

As nobody can look into the future, nobody can predict that anything you buy now will be able to run 3ds max 2017 or the top level 2017 games. All we can say: laptops are less expandable, maintainable and changeable than desktops so they will be outdated earlier than a desktop.
And especially high-end gaming laptops have a rather short expected lifetime. It's some kind of compromise, a gaming laptop. Buy a 3-year warranty and be glad with every day it lasts longer.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
