ANything with a good screen. Maybe separate gfx card if possible. Lots of ram. But highly suggest desktop instead.

laptop vs home system

if you don't need the portablility i would recommend going with a home system. I am currently using a toshiba with an xbrite screen which works ok until the files get over 100m. I'm maxed out on ram at around 1gig. You can upgrade ram at least 3 or 4 times that in a home system. 3 gig would probably get you through just about any files size you may be using.

Dell e1705 for pc laptop

Hi,
I'm in the same boat as you. I'm a web design major using studio 8 and photoshop. I've been shopping for a laptop to compliment my desktop. Most people that I have talked to recommend the Dell e1705. It has a large 17" screen, perfect for all the photos. It also has the core duo processor (the base model has just has the single core) which will help when opening several files at once. The other one that has been recommended to me is the HP dv8000, also 17". This also comes with the core duo, it also has an option for the AMD 64-bit. Something to consider is that on other forums they are saying that in May AMD is releasing their 64-bit core duo processor. Intel's is only a 32-bit. I've been told that the Intel's core duo is big enough to support Vista. But if you can wait a month you can really future-proof your laptop. Make sure you don't have an integrated video memory, get a graphics card. This will help a lot with the number of photos you'lll be using. If you find out anything more I would be real interested. I'm trying to pay only $1000 for a laptop, but most things I'm seeing are going to take me to the $1500 range. Good luck.

Nicole
