Almost all laptops overheat if I set it down on the coach. It's soft and blocks the vents. Some folk claim that's a problem. There are new models like Microsoft Surface Pro that survive that test.
It's been a while but the office supplied a y510p (now the y50 line) with 16GB, 1TB HDD and dedicated video ram for 999USD. I'm sure you will find others in your price range in the USA.
Dear community ,
I am currently looking for a new laptop as my old Acer Aspire V3 is going to leave this world soon.
I felt in love with Dell XPS 13, I also kind of like MCB Pro 13 retina (2015) BUT! I am afraid both doesn't meet my performance requirements, but I am not totally sure about it, so please help me with choosing.
I have to work with big PSD files as I have to retouch sometimes for my job, will these laptops be able to handle complex Photoshop works?
I am also occasionally working with Cinema 4D as a hobby, will these laptops be able to render some still images (not animations) in a normal times? Same question for occasional video editing in Premiere.
My budget is somewhere around $1700 and I am looking for well built computer with no overheating issues, no "wierd clicking noise" issues, no wifi problems... just some serious machines. I am looking for 13" because I am travelling alot and low weight would be welcome, but I could live with 15" too.
Dream machine would have 16gb ram, fast processor, 256GB SSD, dedicated nvidia (2gb) and quality screen...
I would love to have the laptop before Christmass (thinking about XPS 15)
THANKS for any suggestions!
