Yo and Jazh BROFIST! Made by madmen EPIC!!!

Yo,

I am getting sick of my family kicking me off every hour to check email and breaking me out of my drawing groove. I think its about time Koi and I started saving for a new laptop (we had two but they sucked ass).

If you are an artist (duh) and use a laptop that has been holding up for a long time, let me know! I would love to know specific brands and models. I need a laptop that won't crap out on me for saving tons of references, saving art, having Photoshop and Sai, save music, and some episodes. I will also browse the interwebs.

I am not looking for a tablet PC. I hate them.

I also prefer not to pay over $1,000. Under $800 would be FANTASTIC.

Thanks!

I got Professor Chaos and the two additional challenge levels on South Park Tower Defense Play on the Xbox 360. Since these two specs are ridiculously hard to get, feel free to message me so you can see Chaos and the levels in action.

I am a huge advocate for Toshiba, their cheap and frickin' rock solid. I use a Satellite l300 I bought four years ago for about 500 bucks and it still runs like a charm.

I have a dell inspiron 1545 and it's great. It has 4 gigs of ram and a 2.13 gig processor. And you can get the cover of your laptop with a cool design! I have sai gimp and PS on mine as well as lots of photo and music. I def recommend it!

I'd recommend the laptop I got just a few weeks ago. Uhh, Aspire Acer, I believe is what it's called. It have 4 GB (that's apparently great, says the computer dude at wal mart), a built in microphone & webcam (not sure if you'd ever use that), and a 6-cell Li-ion battery that stays charged for hours. It's a very nice laptop, 15'6 inch and lightweight~ *v*
Aand, this is what it looks like.
