Hello ,

Im going college this year to study csc engineering. I have planned to buy a computer.

But im in rather confusion to choose a laptop or desktop.

If I choose a laptop which brand can provide me a hardcore computing.

Hardcore computing suggest 16gb ram , 2-4 gb graphic card.

Should choose mac or windows ?

My job would be programming , video &audio editing , normal internet usage.

Programming would always require higher clockspeed right ?

Please suggest .

Hi, do you have set budget and the specific softwares that would be used? In terms of programming, depending on what OS your programming for, you would more or likely need a Windows based PC and programming certainly does not need a "higher clockspeed".

The best laptop that would cater your needs and computing is the MSI GT60 which uses a workstation based graphics card (Quadro K3100M), a high resolution screen, an i7 processor, 16GB of ram with a 128GB SSD for speed plus 1TB storage.

MSI has a pretty good reputation in terms of reliability and building high performance laptops.

It is far from what most call a lap top, it offers power and features of top desk tops.  It is a mobile work station you should be more than pleased for a long time.
