I am going to enter the field of game design and animation. My desktop computer is a 3.2 p4 and loaded. What i am looking for is a laptop that will compliment this system. I dont need a desktop replacement but rather something that will handle the same software such as maya and photoshop but be portable. Battery life is fairly important as i would like to be able to use this computer in class. I also am not sure if i should go with a mac or pc. If i go with a mac it probably will not work very well with my desktop. Thanks for looking any help would be appreciated.
