Default Laptop for Maya

I'm interested in purchasing a laptop so I can do a little Maya'ing in my downtime at work and possibly on my 1-hour trainride to work... I think I've finally settled on a model, check'r out.

Acer AS1662

I'm not concerned with the battery life, as that 1.5 hour estimate is based off of a 4-cell battery. The laptop would be plugged in 90% of the time anyway. I'd be using it primarily for modeling, and maybe a little animating...probably some Doom 3.

1,199.00 GBP = 2,144.18 USD

1 GBP = 1.78830 USD 1 USD = 0.559189 GBP




but tbh the one u posted has nice specs aswell and is much more resonably priced,

but we all need a dream one to go "Awwwww BABY"
