we are planning to buy a new notebook for mainly graphical work. By that i mean, The adobe Creative Suite CS2 and maybe later Adobe CS3 suite.
The notebook has to be almost as good as a desktop replacement pc.
we are hesitating between the Toshiba X200-21R and the HP 8710W.
weight, size, battery life, price do NOT influence our opinion, we are looking for performance, accurate color display (without extensive calibration) best system to work on for hours on end, and be "future-proof" for 3-4 years before replacement.
i included the spec sheets of both the notebook pc's we are looking at.
Can you experts please make suggestions about which is more suitable ?
Also, we have never owned both laptop brands, are they any good ? Reviews of the HP 8710w seem promising, but there's not much to find on the Toshiba X200-21R.
only Acer, HP, Toshiba are optional, we do NOT want DELL because we have better prices for the other brands (supllier we often work with)
Also, the Toshiba has 2 video cards in SLI-mode. is adobe capable of using the maximum of combined video cards ?
