I am going to University next year, and I will be using software like Maya, Photoshop, Sibelius, Illustrator, etc.
I also use Microsoft word a lot (I don't know where that would come in but I thought I might as well mention it.)
I am not yet sure about the budget but nothing too expensive, please!
Another consideration is that it also needs to be portable.

I was wondering if you could also give me feedback on these laptops (in relation to my specifications);
> MSI GX70
>Alienware M17xR4
> Asus G75VW-DH72
>Razer Blade (2012)
> Maingear Pulse 11

I'm not sure yet. I'd say everything from cheap to middle/high middle of the medium price range. That's probably not very helpful, though, sorry.

I'm looking for quality over cheapness, though - saying that, I could never afford top-end stuff.

If you wouldn't mind recommending what you think are the best, and why, I'll go through and edit out the too expensive ones.
