I would like to expand my CG portfolio. Unfortunately, the current system I use has trouble running any of the programs needed for that type of work. This is also going to be a work computer so, portability is something I have to take into consideration, hence: laptop. I can't afford anything high-end, in fact, budget is limited to $800 U.S. Hopefully, that's at least enough for enough variety.
On a side note, I've been looking forward to the game Black Desert Online. It'd be nice to have a computer that can run that at above lowest settings.
