Here's guide to buying computers and laptops for artists. It's a guide to help artists decide what type of computers to get for their work or education if you're a student.
This is not a geeky guide. I refrain from listing too much specifications because technology is always advancing. The general trend I noticed though is, processing power today generally exceeds software requirement needs. Which is to say, if you go out and just buy any typical computer, it should still run your software without much problems. This guide is to help you optimize your purchase by recommending what you should get and not, in return saving some money.
