As I'm moving out, it's about time I'm getting my own PC, but as it happens... I know squad about hardware.
So... I tought you guys could give me some hints/tips on what to loop for.
(If I misplaced this topic, or you guys think I should not place a not-directly-art-related-topic at all on this site, please gimme a shout)
So, I understand this is quite a broad topic. I tried to narrow it down in 2 questions.
First, i'd love to have a laptop (I travel a lot), but i'm not sure if intensive Photoshopping and a very thin pc combine nicely(Is it going to be très expensive? Will there be room for all the much loved hardware? Is the lcd screen annoying to work with?)
Second, i'm not sure what requirements I should go for. I proudly know what a byte is, but that's about it. Do I need a good video card, or "work memory"(as we call it in the Netherlands) or is there something else?
As for the things I plan to do w/ the thing:
Main uses for my PC wil be: Internet, Photoshopping, Word/Excell/ect. (for school) and a game now and then. (low req. games would be fine tough)
Anyway, that's the gist of my problem. I'd be glad if anyone cared to help me out.
