  • Query over laptop purchase...

    Hey guys...

    I've to give suggestions to my boss about potential laptops for him to issue me with for my job.

    They're not in a position to purchase Macs (which would be the most ideal for me)

    Any suggestions for something under a grand?..something that would cope with having PS, illustrator, Indesign etc open at once?..something with decent ram?...processor?..

    I was looking at these...http://www.euro.dell.com/ie/en/home/...=iedhs1&~ck=mn

    What do you think?...

    I've always been impressed by the Alienware range. But it might a bit pricey.

    Have you checked out the outlet stores?

    I got my Laptop from the Dell outlet.

    4 gb ram
    Dual core 2.56 ghz
    256mb graphics card
    2 x 160 gb harddrives
    wifi
    bluetooth
    loads of ports
    blu-ray player/dvd burner
    hi definition display
    etc.
    (oh and a full keyboard.... score, like my laptop has a sep number pad.)

    It was about 780


    You can pick some great bargains.

      I have had a Dell laptop since 2002 and it still runs. I have CS installed on it now. The only thing I upgraded later was the ram. bumped it up to 2G when I installed CS. After all these years the only thing that is wrong with it is it's not as pretty as my macbook air. But it's my first laptop and I can't seem to part with it.

        What Kerning said. Basically just tell them what you told us and be honest about it. Also, get a contract this time around. Use the same excuse - that this looks like an ongoing partnership with them...

        That is a lot of words to expect a person to stand and read, especially at an exhibit fair where people are talking and socializing, not reading literature. I can see this working as a low contrast background...

        I have a standing desk and pace around a lot at work. I get about 10k steps a day at my office. I go to the gym 3 times a week and I walk/jog/run for an hour a few times a week to keep in practice for...
