Hi everyone,

I am planning on getting a new laptop in the 800 to 1700 US dollar range. What is most important for image processing? I saw a laptop, it had 8 cores with 2.9 ghz. Also saw one with 6 cores with a 5.0 ghz.

I'll probably get one with 16 or 32 ram...

I'm not great with computers so not sure whats most important for speed in processing.  Thank you!!

So a desktop will be best as there you can get the best parts regarding speed. That said, for both desk- and laptops, it's about more cores = better, more memory = better and having SSD storage to work on. Have a look at the AMD laptops as well as they are very good these days in number of cores and speed.
