What brand and specs of a laptop should I buy as a graphic designer?
I work in a regular office hour for a design firm and I still want to do some freelancing job to earn extra extra...I'm thinking of buying a laptop and because of so many brands out there and I'm confuse of what is more productive but not so expensive...I obviously want to use it for multimedia design. Help!

Macbook. Because of it's simplicity and easy layout. And plus it works very well.

more cores on a processor is better for editing/graphic design. if you can, get a quad core, they will run really well. more ram helps performance. a wider screen means you can have more area to work with.

I recommend Sony vaio coz its powerful for photoshop.....or an HP coz that is cheap, buy one with brightview XVGA screen great for graphics, and very reliable for under $1,000 bucks. I bought my HP for a graphic design exhibit project at laptopshoppers.com.
