Laptop for Hitfilm
I decided I wanted to get a laptop because I have a lot of down time at work and thought I could use that time to work on my projects. I ended up going with an Acer Predator G9-791 because I could get a deal on it through a friend and it is a beastly machine! Here are the specs...
GTX 980M with 4GB ram
Intel Skylake Core i7-6700HQ CPU, quad-core 2.6 GHz (3.5 Ghz TBoost)
32 GB DDR4 2133Mhz
512 GB NVMe SSD + 1 TB 2.5″ HDD
This laptop smokes my desktop (GTX 660ti, i7 3770k, 16 GB ram) by way more than I expected! I did a head to head render with a heavy duty scene I've been working on and the laptop finished in 35 minutes and my desktop took 5 hours and 30 minutes to render the same scene at the same settings!
I highly recommend this laptop, but be ready for sticker shock because its not cheap!
