These are the specs of the hand me down laptop I go from my dad. the laptop came from his workplace and it's a huge 15-17'' DELL laptop. But it's too big and heavy to travel with sometimes. And I only really use it to surf the internet, game, and do art. Nothing else really. I was contemplating getting another DELL laptop or at least another brand like ACER or ASUS or even Alienware. But I'm so clueless when it comes to laptops. I focus more on the price than the specs. Like what can I get that has decent specs for a smaller price tag?
My laptop's spec:
DELL Precision M4700
Intel(R) Core i7(TM) (Windows 7 Professional) - 2820QM CPU @2.30GHz
Installed RAM 20 GB (Usable RAM: 19.9GB)
64 Bit operating system
No pen or tough input
So anyone with knowledge of laptops that's good for both gaming and art please give me some input so I can start saving for one once my current DELL finally kicks the bucket.
