I'm looking into getting a PC for school; I would be using it for very high resolution digital paintings, using Photoshop and Sketchbook Pro; 3D modeling/animation with Maya and Mudbox; and 1080p HD video editing/rendering/encoding with Premiere Pro and After Effects. I've never owned a PC before, but I would really like a laptop as I'll be moving from my dorm to studio pretty often. I'm looking for something that is high performance, reliable, 17-inches, but less than $1,500. What might be a good PC brand or machine for the kind of work I do? What PC brands are reliable? I'm really liking this machine here As well as this one Thanks!
