LAPTOP RECOMMENDATION FOR PHOTOGRAPHIC WORK

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

I have been searching for a laptop for photography, with these main requirements:

1. Lightweight for travelling

2. Powerful: Quad Core i7 CPU, 16GB RAM, SOLID STATE DRIVE

3. Screen: 1920×1080 resolution IPS with colour gamut equal to sRGB

4. Win7 Prof 64 bit

I have taken possession of my CLEVO W136 Ultra-Slim/Small 13.3" FHD LAPTOP and can recommend it to all


The performance index is as good as a powerful desktop PC.

The display calibrated well and has very good coverage of sRGB

Except for the brightest cyans and magenta, which can’t be printed anyway, this is the best screen that I have seen in a small laptop after researching many different models.

Here I have mapped the calibrated profile against sRGB using Colorthink 3.0.3

Looks pretty good! Better than the DELL Precision M4700 or MacBook Pro.

    Thanks Barney, as you can see I found the specifications and will do some research too. Thanks also for yesterday’s workshop. I always come away with a lot of homework. Great stuff.
