Decided not getting a MacbookPro ... but now what?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

I'm trying to decide what laptop to get. It's going to be used for work ( photoshop, illustrator, coding, bug fixing ... ).

I was thinking about the MacBook Pro, and since i already work with an iMac, it seemed the logic decision.

But after a while i decided not going with the Apple. With the setup i needed it would go way over the 2500USD ( more into the 3k+)
By experience, i don't know why, working in Windows always got me better results and i feel more focused than in the OSX environment.


Now, the big decision is... what to get.
For the settings i needed ( good amount of memory, good graphic card, good processor and 16-17" monitor ) i checked the HP Envy 17, Sony Vaio F23Z1E and Acer Aspire Ethos.

In this kind of settings ... what's your advise ( these 3 laptops are just for reference, you can advise another one of couse ).

I'm really thankful for any help i can get... since i'm not really into the laptop market and i don't want to make a bad decision at this time.

All I can say is, get one with an i7 sandy bridge, probably the i7 2630qm, for rendering will be quite good on that. Stick to a nVidia chip for they've always seemed better at those particular tasks for me.
I've had a few Lenovos, like the one in my sig, and they run without problem, but in the end it's your decision, and your price.
The Envy range for me seemed to be advertised a lot on the fact it had 'Beats Audio', great, i'll continue to listen to it using cheap ass earphones.
Anyway, there's loads of choices, just find one that suits you.

Thanks guys.
As for the budget... 2000USD.

I didn't know that Envy had Beats sound... but i really don't care either eheheh ...
The problem is with the choices... too many choices eheheh

Yes, i'm going with the new Sandy processors. Every company is upgrading their top of the range solutions to these new Sandy's.
