I'm new to maya and love the software. I need some advice on putting together a system that I can use for film and CG work. I have Maya and Mudbox as well as Adobe Premier, Production Premium. I am currently using all on an old laptop and my laptops performance is stressed running maya. I'm not going to be doing professional work, just for fun and to express my artistic ablities.
What I would like to know is what would be an ideal computer system to run maya as a home user, bearing in mind I'm not a millionare. Your advice is apreciated.
