    Hi all, I'm planning soon to become a carefree freelance 3D Artist. Basically I will be doing 3D work in Tokyo where my GF is at the moment teaching English.

    So, I need a desktop replacement laptop that can cope with pretty high-end 3D stuff.

    I've been looking around and Rock Direct seem pretty cool. Particularly [link=http://www.rockdirect.com/rockshop/shophome.php?itemprcd=X64-3800">this bad boy. Another one I've seen is this

    I'll gey lynched by the Mac fanatics but it doesn't make any real difference nowadays. A high end laptop running Windows would handle any and all applications this guy needs.

    The higher end dell's are supposedly not bad for that kind of work.

    A Macbook Pro??

    EDIT: Link not working, but can be viewed at Apple.com...

    Will be a pain if you need to re-buy software you already have for PC though

    If not, high end Dells are good, as mentioned above, and Toshiba laptops are pretty good iirc...
