I'm looking at getting a laptop to replace my desktop as I'm not using the desktop much now. I use a small 13.3 Toshiba laptop at work and general typing etc but limited space on it to make it my main pc. I'm looking at the gaming laptops as they tend to have the bigger specs. I mostly use lightroom for a lot of photo editing/management and some other cyberlink programs to make photo slideshows. Looking at Acer V Nitro 17.3inch Core i7 GTX 960M 256GB SSD+2TB Gaming Notebook http://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Notebooks/Gaming_Notebooks/59344-NX.MUTSA.005-C77 Battery life not a problem as it will be plugged in most of the time. Burn a lot of photos to dvd but blueray player could be handy to backup(backup) photos if i found cheap disks.
