I'm looking to buy a new laptop! As a photographer, there are a few things I'm looking for. Hope some of you will be able to give me advice! I'm going to start off by saying that I am not looking for a mac. I'm looking for a PC, because I'm an engineer also, and I need a Windows machine to run a variety of software.
I do a variety of photog work (Lightroom, Photoshop), as well as Video work (Premiere).
Here's what I'd like to have:
1. Nice Screen! I don't need fancy super high res screens or touch screens. Full HD is ok for me, but the screen must be nice. I know Apple has the best screens in the industry and I really wished that more PC makers put these nice screens into their laptops. So >= Full HD, glossy, good colour.
2. There are a bunch of beautiful 13" laptops around, but given that I do a lot of work on my laptop, I'd like at least a 14", preferably a 15" screen.
3. Powerful. Haswell processor. 8 to 16GB RAM if possible.
That's all I guess. I'd prefer if it was one of those slim ultrabooks, but they seem to be few of them in the >13" area. Battery life is not supercritical for me, since when I'm doing intense processing, I'd much rather be using a powercord anyway. I'm also open to completely different ideas or suggestions!
What do you think?
