Opinons on a laptop computer

Post by (D/229)Phantom_499 on Tue 28 Jan 2014 - 3:30

I'm in the process of shopping for a new laptop computer. I'm looking for something with which I can use the editor in DCS so I can work on putting together maps and missions. Just curious to see if anyone in 1st Cav uses a laptop for DCS mission editing. If so, what are the specs of your laptop. I'm thinking something at least with an I7 quadcore.


Thanks,

Phantom,

Since I’m on the road ½ of my life, I’ve been the proud owner of many laptops over the years (everything from Dells to Alienwares). Also, factor in to that equation the fact that I’m an avid flight simmer, and well, as you know, just ANY old laptop won’t do.

With that said, I’ve been hauling around a laptop from a company called “Sager” for the last two years, and I’ve been EXTREMELY happy with it. The specs show it’s age:
I5 @ 2.5 GHz
4 Gb RAM
nVidia GeForce GTX 460M

Give them a look see, this one flys all the DCS stuff just fine. I’ll be upgrading to another laptop sometime this year, and I will FOR SURE look at Sager again very closely.

I use my 2012 13" MacBook Pro with Parallels installed running Windows 8.1 to do Mission Editing on the go, works really well...

A Mac computer running Windows. Interesting. What made you install windows on a Mac?

It's still running OS 10.9 (Mavericks) I just need Windows for testing some phone software occasionally, so Parallels is what I use to fire it up when I need it.
