Guys, I need some help. Our computer that had my CS5 has died and I can't do any photo editting at the moment (arrrggh!!... it's killing me!). So I have browsed the forums here for information about what to get and would like to get a laptop (for when travelling...mainly just to look at the photos, not edit), and also a desktop. Now reading through the forums it seems I can have both at a reasonable price and did go to my local computer store to price getting a system build. *sigh* my confusion just gets worse! Two quotes, one $2798, and the other $2209. That is without a screen, that would be an extra $750.
Can I not get a cheap lappy and desktop for $2,000????
I will list the specs he gave meand I would love opinions. Cause I really want to get something soon, it's been weeks since I've been able to even look at my pics!
Intel DX58SO i7
ASI PC61761 ATX Midtower 700w
Intel Core i7 processor i7-960
DDR-III 2Gb 1333MHz - 3 of these
Seagate SATAII 1TB 32mb 7200
DVD/RW SATA 20x Nero8Suite
OEM usb mouse
Gigabyte PCI-E N21iTC 1GI
3 year warranty
Win 7 Home premium
The cheaper one was less 200w in the Midtower, and i7-930.
I would be interested to know if there was anyone else in the Devonport (Tas) area that was good at building comps, or should I just screw it and get a Mac??
