Re: Screen on laptop vs desktop?

There are untold numbers of Windows laptops with more than powerful enough innards to process DaVinci at whatever speeds a laptop is constrained to for less than $1000, probably much less on Black F. They all have nVidia graphics as well as 16gb RAM or the ability to expand RAM. It takes very little to run PS/LR et al despite the fervid imagination of many users.

All laptops are thermally constrained when it comes to processing video, hence not the optimal platform, but again usable.

No laptop screen is optimal for any kind of image or video processing, usable but awful in comparison to the appropriate quality and size external monitor.

I would think the wise approach if pursuing activities based on interpreting what an image looks like should be monitor first, computer second regardless of whether using a laptop or desktop.
