Hello Internet,

I plan buying a computer in the USA capable to handle 3D related tasks nicely and easily.
In fact, I use Autodesk Maya for modeling and rendering, and Nuke for Compositing but I have no idea of the kinds of computers to choose (in terms of perfomance, speed, brand, cooling system and many more if any) to have everything done well.

However, I want it to be a laptop for portability, Mac or PC.
I was thinking of a core i7 8GB RAM 1TB HDD, but I am stuck and need advice so that I don't regret after purchasing one.

I am open minded and your ideas are all welcome.

Looking forward hearing from you.:)
Rod.

Hello Rodney, It sounds like you are looking for a workstation grade laptop. I would recommend something with 16GB RAM and either a Quadro K5100M/K4100M/K3100M or a GTX980M/970M depending on your budget. Check out the DELL Precision series or MSi WT/GT workstation series
