17 inch notebook recommendation for editing and presentation

Postby haring on Tue Oct 20, 2015 8:55 am

Hi!

I need a 17 windows laptop which I would like to use for client presentations (wedding photography) and editing.

Until recently, I had a 17 macbook pro but I would like to move away from mac.

I wild like to have something presentable. I don't really want to have a gaming laptop because it is just too futuristic looking. I liked the clean look of my old macbook pro.

Do you have anything you can recommend?

Thanks!

No worries.

And if you had the spare cash to splurge and wanted to really speed things up you could buy a 1TB SSD drive and replace the HDD it comes with.

I have an older Acer laptop that was starting to get a bit slow so I swapped out the HDD for an SSD several months ago and things are so much better now.

You should be able to pick up a decent 1TB SSD for about $450 AUD
