Suggestion Needed: Graphic & Web Design

by aprjan / May 18, 2005 5:43 AM PDT

I am looking for a laptop that I can use for some graphic design & website design. I will be using this laptop for school as well as business. I don't really want an iBook. Many recommend IBM or Dell. What do you recommend for a person on a budget ($1800 or less)?

Dell with UXGA

If you are doing graphics work, consider a UXGA system (1600x1200 resolution) and max out the memory on the video adapter. If you don't, you will wish you did.

big screen- Dell Inspiron 9300 (17in)...more powerfull but bulkier and bigger
Smaller Screen- Dell Latitude D810- 15.4in widescreen, less powerfull and less bulky, but still supposed to be quite powerfull. I agree though, get the best screen they offer.

Perhaps a Powerbook for $300 more. If not, i would grab the dell because it has more power. If, you don't need that good of a screen (you purchase a separate screen), then your choices have no boundaries.
