  1. 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.
  2. Hi, I am a hobbyist, with a little more than a year with Blender and about a month with 3d Coat. I am looking for a laptop to get me away from my desktop as much as possible. I can still go back to the office for heavy work, such as rendering or super high polygon sculpts. My question is, how much can be done with 3d Coat on a $1000 laptop? I had my eye on a MSI GE70 2OE-017US. ( Intel i7 4700MQ, 12Gb Ram, Geforce GTX 765m, and 7200rpm hard-drive). I appreciate any realistic, down to Earth advice. I know that I will not be producing the next Pixar animated feature film with a budget machine, but I am wondering about how far I could expect to get with such a machine before taking the work to the desktop. I plan to use 3d coat for sculpting, retopology, UV unwrapping, and painting, then probably take the results back into Cycles for test renders(to the desktop for heavy renders), material editing, and compositing. I am learning, and mostly creating simple machines, animals, household objects, etc. I am sure that will change and grow over time. Do you know of any better laptops in that cost around 1k? Thanks ahead of time for any help with this. I apologize if this is in the wrong forum, or if I didn't provide enough info. This is my first post. Thanks
