Hello all, I publish and edit a digital magazine and for the last 2 years have been using a colossal Alienware 18" screen gaming laptop to do this - mostly because I had one already and it was the only computer in the house with the graphic capability of running Adobe InDesign and the rest of the CC suite. However, it's now a few years old - keeps getting nicked by the kids to play games on and with an 18" screen and an aluminium chassis it weighs as much as a sack of potatoes and uses more power than London. I am therefore in the market for a new laptop to run Adobe InDesign and the CC suite in general. I usually manipulate some pretty high definition photos in Photoshop and the documents I am creating in InDesign are usually 100 A4 pages + and are converted into PDF for publishing. Now I have been considering some options including the new MS SurfacePro 4. However, one of my big issues is with Windows 10 - it is far from a perfect product and develops more bugs than a 3 year old in a pig sty and is one of my main reasons for stopping using the big gaming laptpop. The hangs and the windows created issues are causing huge productivity fails and are deeply frustrating. I am also not convinced by the build quality of the SP4 which I have read variable reviews on. I am not going to replace like for like as these big gaming laptops cost an absolute fortune - the current one still has an awesome spec and can run most games despite being 4 years old but then - it did cost £4k new. Now I know that using RAM intensive programmes on a solid state drive laptop with no forced cooling isn't a great idea for long periods of time and I know that Adobe software on very high definition screens can become very difficult to read, especially for those of us over 45. However, the plan is to connect the laptop to two large 40" monitors and it will sit on a base which has integrated cooling fans. I'm only going to be using the desktop publishing software when I am in the office with this set up. On the road it will mostly be word processing - ie writing and editing articles and photo file manipulation in Adobe Lightroom. Obviously the cost effective solution would be to get a new Windows desktop PC with a high spec for publishing but I do a lot of on the road work and am typically out and about most of the time - portability has become a major issue. I use an iPad Air for managing my photos with Lightroom and uploading to a Flickr account. I know absolutely nothing about MacBooks and their technical capabilities viz Adobe design software so am at a bit of a loss as to know which MacBook to go for. I am leaning towards a MacBook Pro 15 Retina Display with an i7 and 16 GB ram with a 2GB graphic card - however - is this overkill? I am not editing movies etc, just a magazine. What could I get away with? The above machine strikes me as ideal but it is also very expensive. I would be very much obliged if those in the know would be willing to make suggestions.
