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
>>512689Just 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.
>>512689>Any current computer that can run videogamesthis, 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.http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100157995%2050001146&IsNodeId=1&Manufactory=1146&bop=And&SpeTabStoreType=0&Order=PRICE&PageSize=30
