I'm going to need a notebook soon for school and work and i was thinking it will be great if i could do some decent photo editing there too. My old desktop is getting a little slow with D800 raw files in PS and LR. I was looking on Macbook pro with Retina display but im not really a fan of apple and I'm not going to spend 3200$ on someting I can't even upgrade. So I was wondering if you can recommend someting with a good screen that is not reflecting so much, has good color reproduction and is evenly lit. Trying to google it did not help me so much.
Also what is more important for PS and LR, ram or processor? To me it seems that loading details in LR needs more processor power and PS with more layers needs more ram (according to my observations).
I am looking for: 7 hour life-time decent screen around 17-ish RAM: 8GB (minimum) PROCESSOR: 3Ghz quad-core (can probably go a little lower but i want to have some reserves) Decent graphics card HDD: 500GB minimum (1TB is ok) SSD for OS is a plus OS: Windows 7 64
I will be glad if someone will be willing to give me advice.
