What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
Photoshop (I'm a costume designer so i use it often), Skyping (i travel 6 months or if the year), web browsing, writing, updating my websie
What software do you intend on using on the computer? Photoshop
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? I play MMO rpgs such as WoW and Tera, but i have a gaming desktop at home.
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it?
I tend to run more than one at a time, research in one window, Photoshop in another, maybe music in a third
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
Yes, a good bit if photos, but i like to keep my hard drive fairly clean
Will you be overclocking? I don't plan to
Location for online shopping/shipment/prices? Miami Fl
How many monitors are you planning to use?
Do you need peripherals? OS? I can get used to anything
Any particular reason why you are upgrading? I had Sony vaio that i loved, bit it's every was sorely falling apart for the last year. Finally, yesterday, it fell from my bag and the screen was completely decimated.
I really need something light, easy to travel with (nothing big... If i can. I know i might need to compromise for processing), good for skyping home and decent for use with my artwork and updating my website. Ive considered a microsoft surface pro 3, 128 gigs.. But I'm just not sure if i can dish out the money while also saving for a much needed car. I've looked at laptops, and saw a 15.6" 2 in 1 but the giant base and weight wasnt working for me.
Any help would be amazing and much appreciated!
