I'm not clear what you want the laptop for. Is it just to travel, run W7, show folks your graphic work, keep in touch etc?
I knew I'd mislead somewhere and no doubt other loop holes will be found too.
No way do I expect to find something like my PC hun, so relax on that one.
As for purpose "Yes" to all that you have mentioned - plus - (and I'll try and keep it short), I toggle between PSCS4 PSPX3 PSP7 & PSP9 (as well as emails, forums, google and other assorted daily stuff). Each graphic program has a different purpose in completing a graphic I would be working on. flashing between these 4 programs on one screen can be eye tormenting, especially when I'm on a deadline. Two screens would half that and give me the added bonus of better comparison. I realise that screen resolutions, color etc are different.
Health reasons sometimes confine me to bed and again, the laptop, if networked to the pc, can allow me to continue working. It might be worth mentioning that I live in a one room self contained cabin, my PC is not far away.
I am looking for a reliable brand, obviously... lol. I recently purchased a second copy of Windows 7 professional, so regardless of what is on the lappie at time of purchase, I would be installing that on it. I notice that win7 home premium is offered on most of them. Price (I'm in Australia), is around the $1,500.00 limit.
I think I'd like an i5 processor over an i3, but thats not a must, just a preference.
As you can see, I've been researching since first posting. There is something to be said for feedback and someone to bounce off.
Thanks for the reply hun
Have a good day
