Ha, well i ended up spending about the same price just about a hundred and a few less than a used macbookpro for a brand new toshiba http://www.amazon.com …psc=1&smid=A3JS​2199GQLB8L (external link)

had a good research experience on the forum looking around for reviews & such. And im sure this will last me a good while. since its only a laptop not a desktop deal.

Because your camera is about as out dated as your advice :cool:


Lenovo was putting high end IPS screens in laptops long before Apple was.
A lot of windows based laptops use lower end screens than the Macbooks, a lot use exactly the same screens, and some used higher end screens.
Currently only Apple is using very high resolution screens in laptops (Retina displays), but it is still a new idea and there is limited supply and doubt as to how useful they really are.

Apple computers in general, including Mac Books have used the same processors as Windows based computers since they switched to Intel. There is no longer any hardware performance difference, except that Apple is often behind the development curve, usually switching to the latest and fastest Intel processors after they have been in the market for 6-12 months.

Upgrades are pay more options, and in more and more cases things like RAM are being soldered to the board, meaning you have to pay extra to get the upgrades from Apple at the time of purchase.
It's becoming more and more common in the industry in general as it saves on space and reduces the number of parts in the manufacturing process. It also lets you rort your customers.

Look at the Lenovo w530 with the 1900 x 1080 wide gamut display. It is excellent and very easy to upgrade up to 32 GIG of RAM and 2 hard drives in an under 6 pound package. It is very easy to pack and transport too.The wide gamut display is 95% Adobe RGB even the MBP retina is only sRGB. For smaller look at the x230. I just went through comparing everything out there now and the most value and build quality with easy upgrades the w530 was hard to beat.

That Lenovo is quite the beast! :) I started to drool a little and then had to turn off the computer.

I am very impressed with mine and the size is very easy to pack in my camera bag. Traveling with it is easy and the processing power is excellent, definitely a work horse I will gets many years out of it. With a intuos 5 tablet it is like having a mobile desktop. It is a pleasure to use and has good battery life and fantastic battery life with one of the Lenovo extended life batteries.

I have an X220 (the previous model to the X230) and I prefer it to the 230, mostly because the 220's keyboard is better. It travels exceedingly well and supports both a mSATA SSD (under the keyboard) and a second 2.5" 7mm laptop drive, which can be a (much) larger rotating disk (up to 500GB is available in the single-platter form factor that will fit.)

That's the convertible tablet and I don't know if it has the IPS display or not.

This one is very similar if not identical, but I have 8G RAM in mine (easily upgraded) and I also added my own SSD. This also appears to have the less-nice Wifi adapter (you can find the good ones on FleaBay for about $20 though and swap it easily, and you SHOULD -- the better one is a LOT faster.) Mine also came with Windows 7 Pro rather than Home Premium as well, and I have subsequently bought the "+++" battery (which returns 6-8 hours of life on a charge in my typical use; the stock "++" battery is good for about 4 hours or so in typical use.)

I've had mine now for roughly two years and there's nothing on the market I'd replace it with today. It's NOT a gaming machine (the display processor isn't all that fast) but as a nice, fast, very portable laptop with an excellent display it's awesome.

No, other than perhaps speed.

My laptop is a mobile office machine, basically. I want something portable and reasonable to carry around, and sacrifice screen real estate to get that. It's ok for photo editing but while it will do video editing you won't like the wait for rendering on it at all.

Machine looks ok but for laptops the screen and KB are the big deals.... hard to know without seeing and touching :)
