What Type Of Computer Do You Use??

What do most retouchers use?? Is your primary machine a laptop with a small or large screen, a desktop with a large screen, or multiple monitors??

What do you prefer??

Re: What Type Of Computer Do You Use??

Hi I am a bit of the gadget boy so gladly share some info.
I only have average monitor 24" HP LP2475W.I know others have way bigger then that and even more then one. PC I have built my self from the scratch.intel i7 920. 6GB RAM tipple channel. I would prefer 9RAM for 100 layer work. Haven't said that it is really fast and smooth experience.

Hey Neb, I'm jealous; what are you retouching that needs a 100 layers!
Once I get to about 10 layers, I save as a stage, flatten the 'nailed down' elements and continue afresh. Heck, I can even lose the layers panel on the desktop!

Hi Rep,

Figurative language. I still able to hit 50-70 layers. Lots of targeted adjustments. I tend to stretch it though.
