Thoughts on new computer for image editing?
Sep 27, 2012

I'm a multitasker and my my four year old system is making image editing frustrating when I have other programs running.

Therefore I'm looking at buying a new computer. I have built my own (Quad Core Windows 7) in the past but I am no longer up to date on the newest/best components.

I'm also considering a MacBook Pro which I would use as a desktop replacement and take with me when I travel so I could start editing while I'm on the road.

I have a very basic laptop now which I imagine will present challenges, although I have installed Lightroom on it.

Any thoughts/links on:

Components?

Complete desktops?

Switching to the Mac World?

Using a 15" laptop for editing images?

Any other experiences you can share?
