Its that time again..

Can anyone spare the time to explain what are the best options available when buying a laptop to use with AE.

Space and portability are necessary so a tower is out the question.

So Mac or PC ? is here a particular advantage to one platform over the other. I use both in different work places and have always had a mac Laptop.

I like the mac OS but is really worth the extra cost ? Does it work out much more anyway.

How about the new windows OS .. Not sure I like the look of it but i haven't tried it.


I would like to enjoy the new ray racing facility and work with High def images/ video.

What do I need to know.

Thanks in advance..

Focus on RAM, fast disk(s) such as an SSD, and fast CPUs. Don't fret about the GPU.

The new Alienware line looks pretty sweet- use an older MX 17 (over 2 years old) in deployed situations and it's been pretty good to me.
