I'm currently studying as multi-media designer and my 32 bit version of windows 7 computer with duel core and 4 GB ram is somewhat lacking the power, especially now when we're getting introduced to premiere pro which my own computer can't even install!
Portability is also an issue here, since I'm not very strong and it takes my at least 1 hour on train and bus each way to go to school.
I'm looking at these 2 laptops - a 15.6" and a 17.3" from a danish site that's known (locally anyway) for building good stuff for affordable prices.
Anyway, please give me some feedback on these two and the configurations I should choose.
My boyfriend did some research on specs and from what he could read in here, he recommened the 15.6" with following setup:
* Windows 7 Home 64-bit (in doubt if it should be Pro version!?)
* Bluetooth integrated
Buuuuuuut - he's wondering if the 17.3" is better since we can choose to get 2 hard discs (120GB SSD is default hard disc (1), and can choose a hard disc (2) "Seagate 750GB (SATA3, 7200rpm)") along with "Kingston 24GB DDR3-1333"
