if ur acer still can work, u can always connect ur laptop to an external monitor to do ur editing work at home/office/etc.

I have thought of it but the placing of laptop with the screen is a problem. Like very weird orientation :confused:
hmmm, true.
1 way is to put the ext monitor beside ur laptop (say on the right), then u turn the laptop to face slightly to the right.

another way is to use another keyboard and mouse, so u can leave ur laptop aside, and bring the kb/mouse in front of the ext monitor.

if there is sufficient space in between u and the ext monitor, u can place the laptop between you and the monitor, and press the laptop screen down 180 degrees.

hope you get what i mean. (i'm not really gd at describing.. haha)

Actually i would like to have a new setup and new calibration tool. With your recommendation, the new LCD will be using my acer laptop spyderexpress profile. It will not be correct which i tink :think:

u can recalibrate ur system to suit the ext LCD monitor. that would be the same as buying, for eg, a new desktop.

Sony FZ is ok. But honestly, I'm on a Lenovo T61P right now and the screen is great. My Acer Ferrari 4005 is still better though.

I have worked on both laptop and desktop. Personally, I would'nt recommend a laptop. A laptop, while space saving doesn't allow you to easily upgrade your hardware when your requirements become more demanding.
- limited ports for peripherals
- usually only 1 primary hard-disk. For editing, best to have 1 primary (for the OS and software) and 1 secondary for the data (SATA connection and not usb/firewire)
- hard-disk (2.5") more expensive and slower than 3.5"
- limited offering of graphic cards
- monitor size limited..I use a 24" monitor and it is heaven ;)

I can think of more reasons but I think these are compelling enuff

TS mentioned that the LCD on his laptop on his screen is becoming dim. Does this happen as a matter of an aging change with the usual screens? Was reading that the newer LED backlit ones do not fade in a similar manner.

just to check, is the average laptop on the street able to support the resolution of a 22 ~ 24" LCD monitor when we hook them up?

I'm also interested in getting a laptop with external monitor combi. Going to US soon and the laptop there are pretty cheap compare to Singapore.

it depends on the graphics within the laptop.
but i guess most so be able to do so w/o any probs.

just to be sure, u need dedicated ones. i don't really trust integrated ones.
