Laptop Recommendations
« on: May 23, 2011, 01:29:23 PM »
Hmm, you don't have a thread that recommends what latest technology people should buy do you? Whelp, no matter~

Harrow boys and girls, Krystal here with a request for all of you tech-savvy people and not-so-tech-savvy-people and just people in general.

But I shall skip that and skip to the point. I'm looking to buy a new laptop and I really want to know what other people think is a good one to get.

I don't have the money to waste on a Macbook, and I really want a tabletPC with Wacom technology but if there isn't a good one out there that's okay too.

I don't want it to be any heavier than a handgun and I want at least as much power as Xion. Who is 2 years old =w=b

tl;dr I WANT AWSM LAPTOP WHAT SHOULD I GET

Not going to happen.

If you're looking for a tabletPC to do art then you are looking in the big bucks category, period. You need a boat load of ram, a good pen and tablet setup, and a really decent processor.

I recently got an HP Touch Smart tablet laptop two months ago, and it's really great for my needs. I use it for some art, but I'm sure there are much better (and much more expensive) for art. It has no felt tips or anything like that, just a standard pen. It works well for what I want, but I can't say for sure it'll be up to the standard you are looking for. I'm not an artist, but I use it merely for concept sketching.

If your primary concern is to do art, you should just get a high end Wacom (or greater) for your (presumably) high end desktop. In the industry that's what they go for, not so much tablet laptops.

A tablet PC would be best, but I'm fine without it as well. Honestly, I already have an intuos (best you can get that doesn't have a display) and it serves me fine, I just don't want to have to lug it around when I run around with my lappy.

If I wanted extremely high quality input I'd go for pencil and paper anyway. Just enough accurate pressure sensitivity would suffice in a lappy~

Yeah, lappy is for convenience \o/

Then the one I got will probably serve you well then. HP Touch Smart. It was really cheap, and better featured, than the competitors; Dell, Fujitsu, etc. I really maxed it out too.
