Hello everyone, I will be making a future purchase for a laptop. My Macbook Pro isn't as great as it use to be. So I wanted to do research on laptops now and save me the trouble later, so if you guys would like to link me to some laptops or ones that are just amazing. I am currently looking at the HP Envy 17 and Falcon Northwest TLX(not sure how bulky this is) Things I need the laptop to do. Run Maya ( a bit of rendering, I'll just use my desktop for that) Play Video Games Run Photoshop and other Adobe applications fast Other 3D applications Needs to be slim and easy to carry around( very important) I really dislike the bulkiness of Alienware laptops etc(way to use to the macbook pros) price range I am hoping for something about 1600-1700, I was only looking at the Falcon NW because I've been wanting one since Voodoo PC was still around. I really appreciate everyone's help!
