    I call it many names. The two that seem to be most accurate tho are "Hell" and "Work".

    This thread is so close to being a discussion thread that I will leave it here but ask the OP to make a change to the first post to infuse something like "Share your opinion in the best computer out there" or something to break it up from "help me" to "share your opinion". If you would like to leave it as is let me know and I will move it to the drawing and animation section.

    I have an acre and it has last me for ever now. It was fairly cheap when I got it to but as for the specs I have no clue but manga studios 4 works fine on it *no help*.

    "[an error occurred while processing this directive]" that's what I get when trying to view page 2 of this thread :O

    Laptops can be good, but in my experience they run much slower than a desktop PC...and will never be as good at a desktop PC...they are designed to be smaller, portable, compact so there are "sacrifices" made for this.

    But on another note great for travelling and browsing where ever you want etc.

    Ellipses! I will fix it this time because I'm sure the OP didn't know about it.

    What are the opinions on laptops that are allso tablets? Ive heard they are slow as hell and one that I wanted needed an external cd drive which I thought would be a pain to have to deal with.

    My laptop is the G74Sx Asus, badass gaming laptop, and as such, sacrificed portability for power. See, laptops can be just as good if not better than your average desktop, given you're willing to shell out the cash, if not, Cloudy is right to say they are mostly for portability.

    As for laptops that double as tablets, I've also heard not so good stuff about them. Apparently Windows 8 is looking to remedy this, since it'll primarily work for touch surfaces. But I wouldn't jump right into it, Win7 is perfecto.

    in terms of the most reliable laptop I think it would have to be lenovo but normally you should run maya on a desktop.

    Get an Asus brand.

    I have never had any problems with mine, and it's quite popular with the computer guys.

    that is really for casual use, do not ever pick it for things that require a lot of power like maya

    This is what I read: Extremely expensive and top-of-the-line laptops can be better than average, easily affordable non-portable tabletop machines with more capability to upgrade, just as long as you pay maybe six times the price, for which you could buy a desktop equivalent that could put a world-renowned astrophysicist's machine to shame.
