    Default Please recommend a laptop under $2000 for travelling photography purposes

    Appreciate your experience in the laptop, mostly to download photos, some editing with photoshop and access net to forum.
    Should not be too heavy, neither too basic, like the netbook, which I consider too limited in speed and storage space.

    A pre-owned laptop -where to get this for photography-also would be good.Thanks.

    Netbooks too slow to use Photoshop and LR right? Anyway, I am using an old P4 to do PS and LR work. It is HELLA SLOW! Almost unbearable.

    2000 is actually a very good budget for a notebook. If you say under 1000 it will be a lot more challenging.

    my thought is for the cheapest macbook - the white plastic but upgraded with the new integrated graphics by nvidia.

    if you can upgrade the ram to the max, it would be an excellent machine.

    Ya, but the new version seems like a pretty good upgrade to the aluminum body.
    Sleeker and able to dissipate the heat faster. Probably gives you a better durability for travelling too.
