    Hello folks,

    I'm trying to find a laptop that will run Photoshop CS6 truly fast.

    I'm thinking about i7 3rd gen, 15" and 1920x1080!

    1500$ is the maximum. I'm more in the 1000-1200$.

    I found the Dell Vostro 3560 (999,00) and the Lenovo Y580 (1049,00).

    The Vostro got a worse CPU (i7-3612QM) and a worse GPU (HD 7670M) but is AntiGlare and got a 32GB SSD while the Y580 got a i7-3610QM and a GTX660M but is glare and doesn't have a SSD...

    Suggestion?

    Hard to suggest anything since most laptops comes with horrendous screens. MacBook Pros have good screens but the price premium is quite significantly higher. If I am in your position, assuming you don't use CS6 on the streets I will just get the Dell and a IPS monitor.
