new to forum, need help

Posted: September 18, 2010
I apologise for the double post, but figurede this might be a better category to post. I recently started school at Digital Media Arts College in Boca Raton , and am looking for a laptop. I am going for computer animation with a concentration in game art. Any suggestions would be appreciated, as I am clueless which direction I should take in making this purchase. I want something new and up to date and money is not an issue, also I need it by next month. Thank you in advance for your suggestions and advice. MiniFTOPS

So here is my double answer Wink
I always prefer stationary PC's because I can built a machine much stronger than any laptop for a much, much lower price and have no problem with overheat. I can't go with it anywhere, but its power gives comfort in work
Laptop's low clocks, weak graphic cards and often visits in services discouraged me enough.
But if money really isn't an issue and you must have a mobile machine then I'd propose you to look for BOXX offers. Strong laps are rather huge and heavy but still mobile

If you're looking at using 3d animation programs such as 3ds max or maya then I strongly recommend you get a PC rather than a laptop.

You should look at AlienWare hardware or Boxx.
