So right now I have a Toshiba satellite that is about 4 years old. In the past few months I have been suffering through it chugging along at times and playing games on their lowest settings. So my questions are:
1. Should I buy a new PC/Laptop or just update the ram, graphics cards and such.
2. If I should buy a new system should it be a laptop or a PC?
-I have considered both and since I'm in school I use my computer a lot but moving a PC tower twice a year isn't too big of an issue.
3. If any well informed and experienced buyers could help me choose or narrow down specifically what kind I should buy. Keeping in mind that I primarily use my computer for school and gaming, so ideally I would want something that would allow me to play the games I frequent (Skyrim, Diablo 3, LoL, and other popular titles on steam) on the highest or higher end of the spectrum graphics wise without a drop in performance or speed. Also my schoolwork heavily involves using programs such as Maya, Z,Brush, Photoshop, Mudbox and other 3D modeling software. So if possible I would ideally like to be able to easily run those programs at high performance that would also be able to handle all rendering of my final 3D projects efficiently.
I'm not the most knowledgeable about computer specs so help is much appreciated.
