So it appears that I'm getting a job at a new studio.
The lead artist told me over phone that they don't have static workstations so I'll have to pick a suitable laptop instead. I don't think it's going to be a major issue because the graphics that they do are for mobile games developed in Unity. But I will need a powerful laptop that is capable of supporting Photoshop and Maya without lag.
So I would need some advice, help and recommendations on specs to look for - or even what brand and model to choose.
Some requirements that I have:
Strong CPU - at least a modern quad-core
8+ GB of system RAM
Windows 7 (Win 8 is okay if all other specs compensates)
Any experts out there?
