I am seriously considering buying DV2 with following configuration: MD Athlon™ Neo Processor for Ultrathin Notebooks MV-404096MB DDR2 System Memory (1 Dimm)320GB (5400RPM) Hard Drive (SATA), SuperMulti 8x DVD+-R/RW DriveGenuine Windows Vista® Home Premium 64-bit with Service Pack 112.1" Diagonal WXGA High-Definition (8) HP LED BrightView Widescreen Display (1280 x 800), ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3410 Graphics
90% of my PC use would be internet browsing, photoshop elements editing and rarely watching some normal dvd movies.
Will this configuration be good enough for this, or I *must* consider dual core.
my friend is thinking about purchasing a new laptop for his mother. The HP DM3 laptops look to the best solution so far since they are both lightweight and have great battery life, something he thinks she'll appreciate. One thing i'm not sure about is their ability to run Adobe Photoshop CS4 smoothly.
I don't use Photoshop very often and when I do, it's on my laptop, which is pretty decent in terms of specifications. Will the program run fine on a laptop with a Intel CULV or AMD Neo processor and integrated graphics? Which leads me to my next question:
Which Pavilion laptop would you recommend? Are they both similar to each other than the processors?
I was wondering what is the best place to buy Photoshop CS4 for Mac (price wise and such)? I don't need the entire CS4 Suite just photoshop and I am current college student so I get the discount. I was checking on Amazon last night and I can get the student edition for about $200, I could of swore I saw it for $150 a while back....
I was considering dropping down to Photoshop Elements but have grown up on the full version and am timid to drop to PSE...
I want to buy a notebook for everyday use and i`m gonna to take to the university so i need a notebook with at least 5 hours of battery life. I also want to have an opportunity to do heavy tasks like gaming, photoediting etc.
I`ve considered Macbook pro new 2010 line. The macbook pro 13 inch is perfect with its weight, battery life, design but.. performance with 320M card.. How is it ? I would be gratefull to the owners of new macbook pro for answering my question:
1) How is Mac OS for photoediting ex Photoshop CS4 ? Will 13" Macbook handle converting Raw photos to Jpg?
2) How is Mac OS in games ? How long does the battery holds when gaming om Mac OS?
3) How long does Windows 7 hold on one bat. charge with wi-fi and under gaming?
4) Will I be able to play on macbook pro 13" Gta4, Splinter Cell Conviction - on medium setting?
5) Am I to consider smth else for my needs like Acer 3820 ?
I've installed Photoshop CS4 11.0.1 on my Macbook Pro (15", 2.8Ghz, nVidia 9600M GT), but under Preferences>Performance, the GPU Settings section is greyed out with the message: "Graphics hardware acceleration is unavailable. You will need to upgrade your video driver and possibly your video card."
I have tried re-installing Photoshop, trashing preference files etc. But the problem still exists. I can't find anything on the web about the 9600M GT or the 9400M not being recognised by Phothop CS4, so what could be causing this?
iam planning on getting the macbookpro15 with the 3.0 processor with 4gb ram. my main goal is to use photoshop and finalcut express. my current system as a thinkpad x200t and the canon 7d files are taxing the system badly. do you think this is the way to go?
main question is: will i beable play mw2 in bootcamp? will it be playable?
I've had my covet for arround less than a month now and i've now got serious issues with photoshop cs4 and all the cs4 suite.. like selecting actionscript in flash cs4s actionscript panel.. (major lag)
It must be the graphics drivers, but i have installed all the varieties i have read about on this forum both from nvidia & laptovideo2go to no availe.. after opening a few psd's and trying to move layers around from one to the other (via the tabs etc..) it really starts to become unusable.. it feals like there is a graphics card memeory leak or something, also when i open the nvidia control panel to see what's going on the 3d logo start to stutter when i move my mouse over it continiously...
is anybody else having issue with cs4..?
covet, quadcore, 8gb ram, 3700m + 320 hd..
about to install another 320 hd and was happy to see that i don;t have to reinstall everything.... via (ludicrus speed)
How many of you enjoy using the 13.1" (1600x900) screen on the Vaio Z for Illustrator or Photoshop? Do you all plug it into larger monitors before using any of these or other Adobe Creative Suite applications? I do a lot of complex Illustrator work that requires attention to detail, but also some light Photoshop work. Other than that, my use of the laptop would be limited to MS Office, Firefox, and iTunes.
Further, would you prefer a 14.1" (1440x900) screen for Adobe CS work, without an external monitor? Does the extra inch and lower resolution make much of a difference?
At this point, this is the only thing keeping me from hitting the order button on either a somewhat expensive, yet powerful Z (plus an extra monitor, mouse, and keyboard), or a relatively cheaper, albeit less powerful Lenovo T400S (without an extra monitor or other accessories).
(The T400S's beautifully thin (0.83") profile is also rather attractive in comparison to the Z's bulkiness.)
I am considering a new notebook in a month or two. and the Macbook Pro is in my list. I am wondering if the GeForce 320M has been benchmarked, and if it's signifcantly better than the 9400M GT, and if it can handle StarCraft 2 and maybe some acceleration in FireWorks and Photoshop?
I have up-to date Windows 7 x64 SP1 ENG version of windows.The problem poped upÂ 2 or 3 revisions of Nvidia driver ago with original version of Photoshop CC 2014. As you can see updating program and video card drivers to date, do nothing. And yes, i tried to launch PS with mouse context menu and forcing to use Nvidia chip. In control panel of video card PS is assosiated with Nvidia card too.
I have got Notebook Compaq Presario.. I cant connect to the internet using the wireless connection.. the reason is that i accidentally did some operations, and cannot switch on the light on the front panel of the notebook.. it does not work, i mean the light of the wireless connection button does not light.... I turned off something...
Does anyone have a good way to OC this laptop other than using ClockGen? I am basically wondering if there is a BIOS option. I know there are some OC guides out there, but this laptop is almost 3 years old, and as far as I can tell does not have an option in the BIOS. Also, my proc is the T2600, not the one is this review, but other than that exactly the same. I am looking to play around with this because it is old and I dont care too much if I fry it since my new hotness is on the way.
By the looks of the bottom of my laptop it seems it might be mxm compatible as there are lots of removable pieces... including one that looks alot like an mxm slot. I know that this laptop can be configured to come with the 9200m. This is a fairly brand new model but could someone tell me whether this thin is mxm compatible?
Ive just about had it with Vista on my laptop and want to try a new OS before I junk this thing. Is anyone running Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z AMD 64 bit laptop? The machine is about a year old and I have 4gb of RAM and the thing is a dog. Ive used Ubuntu in the past on Dell laptops and its a pain to get everything running wireless drivers, flash, etc. Win7 being a RC may or may not have everything up to speed on for my machine.
So, if you have Win7 or Ubuntu on a HP DV5z please give me a shout, good or bad.
I'm am deciding whether to buy this laptop for school use. It has a great size, stylish, and decent specs for a laptop that is so lightweight. The only turn off is that it was made for entertainment, but should this laptop do well for word processing, spreadsheets, and web surfing?
Would the 9 cell battery last for more than 5-6 hours? My budget is also under 700$ but it can stretch a little.
