Help me get a new laptop

Hi Guys!

I currently need your help. I am looking to buy a new laptop to play D3 on. I am a Web and Graphics Designer so, I will need it to work my Adobe Softwares as well. Do you guys have any suggestions as to what brand and model would be good for me?

Im currently looking at the Acer V3 and Lenovo Y580....

From my understanding both are actually rather outdated models still fitted with 3rd generation Ivy Bridge CPU.

For me laptop battery life is an important factor to consider when purchasing one. And the 4th generation Haswell CPU offers quite a significant boost in that aspect.

I would personally suggest the Lenovo Y410p, which is about the same price and comes with a beefy 4th gen i7 CPU as well as a decent mid tier GPU.

You're going to want as much ram as you can get, 8 at least, but 16 would be much better, since you're graphics editing. You want it (Ram) fast, 1600MHZ should be good, intel might be your best bet for CPU, You're going to want on with Nvidia integrated graphics, mainly for gaming.

8 - 16 GB of fast 1600 MHZ ram. I'd really suggest going for something with, or making sure you can increase to 16Gb. You'll need it for doing any serious graphics editing.

intel if Nvidia integrated graphics. Intel has much more efficient cpu's, you just don't want their integrated graphics.

AMD if only for AMD intergrated graphics. If AMD, you want the processor to be faster than if it were intel, since they aren't as efficient.

A large 1 TB + HDD if possible, you're going to need the space, since graphics editing will eat your HDD up.

Sorry, not really in the know about laptops, but, these are pretty basic guide lines.
