I am not a game player. My primary applications are Photoshop Extended (CS5.1 now, soon to be CS6), After Effects and Autodesk Maya.
Which laptop has the most bang for the bucks? I'm concerned about the Intel GPU. My current Dell (Inspiron 1545, Dual Core Pentium) has a GMA4500HD and it isn't fully supported by my applications.
