I have looked into several setups for my rapidly approaching college deadline. I have been indecisive over what computer(s) to purchase. The usage- I am a graphic design major, the machine will be used for photoshop, illustrator, indesign, itunes, and frequent dvd ripping/burning. The computer(s) should last through all of college; I will be a sophomore so at least three years. The budget- between 2000-3500 tops. Money is not exactly a factor, but in this economy if I can save it will be nice. I have the money saved now, im just waiting as late as I can for an update. So two machines is an acceptable idea, I have looked quite a few options. I do love larger monitors, and nice big displays. So if anyone would like to post a theoretical setup and some reasoning behind it I would be most appreciative.
