need some recommendation for laptops. have been using mac powerbooks so far. Use mainly for location tethered shooting (C1 pro and Canon DPP) and some Photoshop CS2.
1) transfer rate from camera to laptop - as fast as possible (camera, usb2/1394, HDD speed dependent?)
2) refresh rate of raw files at 100% (for checking focus) - as fast as possible - processor or video card dependent?
3) powerful enuf to do PS on 1gig files with relative ease - 2 Gig RAM?
4) accurate screen (in terms of colour)
5) at least 15" screen
6) two HDD if possible - to do software/hardware RAID 0 or 1. (possible?)
I am open to using both Macs and PCs - whichever that i can get the fastest machine.
