as the topic says i need a laptop mainly for graphic designing purpose, my biggest concern is: which brand have better LCD / Display quality, surely your first answer will be mac book pro, but i am tight on budget so cant go for that, the options i have are
1. Sony E series
2. Dell Studio
3. HP DV
4. Lenovo idea pad
right now i am not concentrating on specs as there are so many reviews available for that but i cant find any review about the LCD these brands are using, So which of them have better Display and built quality.
Just go into a best buy and see for yourself. Of course the lighting in the store is meant to minimize glare and make them seem a little better than they are, but if you look closely you shouldn't be fooled. Just see for yourself what you like, and what you're willing to tolerate.
Anyway, just about any laptop with a dual core 2.0Ghz CPU, 4GB of RAM, 5400RPM Hard Drive, and 64-bit OS should do. Make sure you look into the battery life of the model as well.
