At 2500 you get nearly the top of the line from them. Something does not jive with that budget and claiming you can't afford dell or Apple.
I will write that the quest for speed is never ending. Today's 600 buck laptops can make 2 year old machines look sluggish.
There's a free lesson here. Don't over invest in this.
I need advice on a laptop that will be able to run programs such as photoshop, renderman and Maya at a decent speed. It should have video editing capabilites and enough memory to store videos and thousands of photo and music files. A good graphics card is a must. I have looked at many laptops ranging from dell, Apple and Boxx but can't decide on any one. The Boxx laptops look great but are too expensive for me. I can only afford to spend upto $2500. Any advice will be appreciated. Please Help!
