So, this wouldn’t be happening for a while, but I’m considering some expensive hardware decisions.
One, looking for a new computer. Desktop. I need a good video card for 3D modeling, gaming, and photoshop. Of course I’d also need Ram, but both video cards and ram are replaceable. It’s mostly a debate of is there a decent computer that has what I want already for less than a grand? Should I build it? Should I buy a cheap computer with good fans that I can add new cards to?
And then I’m finally breaking down and getting a cintiq in the next year or so. I’m debating between the new and very portable 13hd and the old and huge 21 ux. Price between the two doesn’t matter as much.
I’ve worked on the 21ux before at school. It was awesome, but the hugeness almost seems unnecessary. Plus it always felt very very hot after a while.
The 13hd I’ve never handled. I don’t think the size would be a problem for me, considering I’ve worked on my samsung 10.1 for drawing (just artflow and sketchbook pro will never beat photoshop for me.) Plus the newness means no worrying over ebay purchases.
Really it just comes down to do I push out another $500 dollars for the 13? Cheapest I’ve seen is $900, where as the 21 ranges from $400 to $600.
Apparently my eyes were already too used to flux (its a screen color changer for night time computing) so i ended up doing those two speed paints without knowing what colors i used!
Aw well, at least they still looked okay.
