Best Dell Laptop for Photo/Video
Dec 9, 2012

I'm going to buy a new laptop for my photography needs and could use some guidance on what to get.

Currently I'm using Lightroom 3, Photoshop CS6, and InDesign. In the future I'd like to be able to edit larger images (8' tall), more video, virtual tours, etc.. I would also use this laptop to do web development, SQL/MySql and other things like that.

I'm on a limited budget ($1000) and prefer a laptop because it gives me a bit more freedom to take it anywhere I'd like. I'd like to stick to Dell, unless there's a different PC with more value for the price.

Does anyone have recommendations on CPU, Ram, Video Cards, etc.. for a situation like this? I'm practically illiterate when it come to computer configurations. Should I get Windows 7 or 8? Thanks!
