    High spec laptop needed...

    We are in the market for a high spec laptop.

    Its for our media technician and is going to be used for video production.

    It needs

    17" screen minimum
    Large hard disk
    fast processor
    4gb RAM
    decent graphics card
    firewire
    Blue Ray with DVD burner.
    3yr warranty

    SVHS input would be nice

    and as usual we would like to do this for the lowest cost possible.

    so PM me a quote/any questions

    It won't be cheap, but if it's going to be used for Video stuff, I would seriously recommend a 17" MacBook Pro with an external Blu-Ray drive.

    It just depends really on exactly what you're going to be using, and how much you want to spend!

    anything with a decent graphics card is going to be really pricey

    it needs to be portable

    Buy a sacktruck I would say the MacBook Pro but it's still a bit of a compromise. By SVHS do you mean S-Video?

    thats the one.

    As for the graphics card he is not playing Crysis so anything that is going to work for video production will be fine.

    you'll have to lower your spec then
    - specifically, when you say "high spec graphics card" - because that is the killer here.

    Do I need a high spec graphics card for making videos or is it just for games?

    At the moment im looking at an Acer with a 1gb card.

    almost anything is going to be higher spec than what he is using at the moment.
