Greetings /3/

I'm getting into computer animation but class time isn't enough for me to properly finish all of my projects, so I'm planning on buying a laptop that can handle Maya, Zbrush, etc.
What specs would you folks recommend while keeping the budget at a maximum of about $1k? Thinking of taking a trip to the nearest Best Buy this weekend since it's the only tech store nearby

Just buy the computer with the highest specs you can afford, but prioritize CPU performance higher than if you were shopping for a gaming rig. Any current computer that can run videogames will be plenty good enough for /3/ work.

But actually rendering animation without at least a small computer lab as farm is never gonna be a good experience even if you have a $5000 computer.

this, Asus rogs in particular are a pretty safe choice.

Acer has some good laptops on Newegg. I've got an Aspire V (840m GPU) and its worked pretty well so far.
