I need three workstations,two of which have to be high end graphics ( advertising etc) and a big hard drive plus a very good sound editing software.The other PC will just be used for admin purposes ( client database etc) again with big hard drive and memory.Either desktop or laptop will although desktop preferably and any O/S that will be compatible with these specs.Have a budget of 6000.00 pounds to use
We use these all the time. They can be speced out with what ever sound card you want, and with Dell's gold warranty, they are very well supported. They are well cooled and well designed from an IT stand point.
Precision T5500 or the T5700.
I have worked with HPs equivalent and they are good too as long as you splurge on the warranty.
