    So I was wondering..

    What is the best laptop for a Visual Communications (Graphic Design) student? (college)

    I love gaming, music, and I will be editing/creating photos on the computer.

    My budget would have to be less than $1,000.

    This is what I want to get ATM.
    It'd be a bit much to lug around everywhere, and the battery life isn't too grand, but I can cope, as well as find an available outlet..

    Good? Bad?

    Reviews are pretty good and its specs are completely badass.

    (excuse my language) :rolleyes:

    Never heard of it but from specs it looks promising , I can't recommend you a specific model but my experience with Toshiba was very good. Stay away from Dell at least that what will I do from now on.

    Unless you are going to plug it into an external monitor, I would go for something with a higher resolution monitor.
    BTW, if you want to do any seriously graphic design work, you will probably need 1-2 external monitors anyhow.

    Yeah, I am planning on getting one for home on my desk eventually..

    The school store at the college I want to go to sells lots of monitors for discounts to students :D

    It was like a 22" Acer widescreen for like $170.. which might be normal.. idk.. I'd have to look into it!
