I've been working on a Samsung netbook for the past 2 years, which pretty much coincided with my picking up photography again, and (thus?) also picking up digital post processing. I can tell you, netbooks are NOT suitable for anything heavier than GIMP! Silkypix, RawTherapee and Lightroom have all been somewhere inbetween slow and maddeningly slow, and although LR3.6 was allright, LR4 is costing me about 20 minutes to half an hour per photo, simply because every smallest adjustment needs between 1 and 30 seconds to compute. Needless to say this is a waste of life time, and when my netbook started showing its age (they're built to be as cheap as possible and have horribly short lifespans), I finally had an excuse to buy a proper laptop. So, today I got a Toshiba C670 with 2,53GHz and 4GB RAM - and WOWWWW this thing flies! In LR4, all the adjustments I make are virtually instantaneous! I bet I can edit most photos in about 2 or 3 minutes now! Also having a (surprisingly good for the price) 17.3", 1600x900px screen really enhances the photo viewing experience, as well as the accuracy of my editing. For the money I put into it (less than € 500), I'm extremely pleased with what I got:smile: and I can't wait to put the time I'll be saving to good use!
