    Laptop for Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere Pro

    coquito36 Level 1

      Hi

       

      I'm looking to get a laptop for photoshop, illustrator, after effects, and premiere pro.

       

      1 Are there any specific models that you guys would recommend ? I don't care about the screen being too big or too high resolution, since I will be attaching an external monitor(s) for the material/footage. I'll definitely look for a model that will support up to 32GB RAM. Apart from premiere pro, is a dedicated GPU necessary for ps, illustrator, ae ?

       

      2 In case I will be configuring my own laptop -- most probably a clevo/sager,

       

      a) Is a NVIDIA Quadro K1100M sufficient ?

       

      b) What's the minimum CPU that would be sufficient ?

       

      c) Is a RAID configuration necessary ?

       

      d) How many HD/SSD at a minimum ?

       

      d) Are thunderbolt and/or firewire necessary ?

       

      Thanks in advance.
