The last laptop I bought was the XPS M1210 and it’s fair to say it has seen better days. I wanted a fairly beefy laptop that will run Adobe CS5 but for the budget that I had, I had very few to choose from. While I would love to try out one of these spiffy MacBook Pro’s I couldn’t justify the price tag. So instead I went with an Alienware M15x, specced with Intel i7 920xm, 8Gb of RAM, 1GB of Dedicated graphics (GTX260M), Bluray drive and LED backlit screen.
I’ve yet to put it through its paces. It’s on a default installation so I need to remove all the bloatware and install Windows 7 Ultimate, this process takes time. Next step is to install Adobe Photoshop CS5, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5. I’m interested to see how quickly it can process my videos.
I’ll update this post when I’ve had more time to play with it.
