I'm in the looks for a laptop for video editing, some VFX work, 3DS Max, and slight gaming. I know what kind of hardware I need (i7, 16gb RAM, some Nvidia M version GTX, lots of storage space, preferably an SSD paired with an HHD), but I want to hear some experiences from people.
I'm not currently keeping my eye on any laptop, at the moment I'm just looking for suggestions. I would like a laptop about the same portability as a Mac Book Pro, but NOT a Mac Book Pro. I'm a windows type of guy. The thing I'm most concerned with is cooling. It would SUCK to have a laptop melt down while doing some intense renders.
I read somewhere that the some i7's download when they are under intense stress (like while rendering). If that's true, of course I wouldn't want something like that.
Btw, I've built a rendering rig. I just need something portable.
