    Laptop for 3d coat

    Abn, I am for sure going to snag a 1070. That'll be next after i recooperate from the laptop purchase. Do you have any experience with overclocking? Rebel, actually i do. I have a hi-poly sculpt I wanted to see how a laptop handles. If i can gey by sculpting on the laptop and doing renders on my desktop i'd very happy. Its just a matter of actually being able to be productive while being away from the workstation.

    Bust sculpt

    I give it a smidge of space actually. For the render shes actually floating about a half inch off the ground. I do this so i can get some nice occlusion going.

    Bust sculpt

    Hey folks, recently finished this sculpt. Wanted to practice sculpting a bust, and sculpting facial features. Always down for feedback, and would love to hear what you think! -cheers sculpted/rendered in 3d coat - color correction and minor editing in photoshop

    Dang, the lenovo looks like beast. How does it handle 3d software? Oh, and Abn, upgraded my ram yesterday, i can actually move around my hi-poly sculpts now! Haha thanks for the tip. I was also gunna hold out for the 1080m, but i have a feeling laptops sporting em will still be pretty expensive despite the desktop versions being so affordable.

    Thanks Abn. Your absolutely right! I've been running into slow downs because of that and have been planning on upgrading that as well.

    Laptop for 3d coat

    Hey everyone, first time posting on the forum, been using and loving 3dcoat for almost a year now. I have a few questions regarding laptops and 3dcoat. I'm planning on getting a laptop specifically for 3dcoat and photoshop to use as a mobile workstation. I Need an alternative from when I am away from my home workstation, and specifically I am looking at the MSI G72 Apache. http://www.xoticpc.com/msi-ge72-apache-pro-070.html i7 6700, nvidia 970m, 16 gb ram, etc. At home i run a workstation i built about 2 years ago. It has a NTEL I5-4670K 3.4 GHZ processor, amd firepro v5900 workstation card, and 8gb ram. It runs 3dcoat great, and does everything i need it to. Though researching and comparing benchmarks on laptops point to the msi g72 running even better/faster than my workstation. I'm trepedatious believing that a laptop could ever out perform my pc, even though its a coupple years old. So here are my question: what should i expect from a laptop with these specs handling 3dcoat? Are these specs overkill? Or underkill? If so what would be better or more suited? i lack the first hand experience with laptop hardware to really understand what to expect. I am hoping someone here might have a bit of experience! (looking specifically at msi over other laptops of same caliber due to its cooling vs size) thanks in advance, and i look forward to hearing anyones input.
