Hey, everyone.

I'm an animation and illustration major and I need a solid laptop. I already built a new gaming-calibar rig just a couple months ago as my main workshop. However, I need a means for mobility for when I'm not at home.

I'm going to be running various programs along the lines of Maya and ZBrush, Photoshop/Coral, Adobe Premiere, etc. So, good resolution is needed, for sure.

I know a bunch of people are probably going to say "Get a Mac." But, I have a Mac, already, and it's full of music production software for when I need to score my short films.

Besides, since the companies gives it's customers 2 liscences to put the program on any 2 computers, I figure putting it on a PC and a laptop would be more effecient, since I don't want to spend all that money Mac-ifying all my software that I already have for Windows. (which would, probably, come out to about the same amount as buying a laptop, anyway.)

Any thoughts? Much obliged.
