    true enough... I don't think there is much to choose between the major brands - HP, dell, acer, asus.. I would always choose between models... there are lots of things to think about; my experience of laptops is limited to HP and Acer - battery life is way different in the two models in question, as are USB ports [not everyone want to use a powered hub] - just two examples over and above the baseline spec; as said it always depends what you want it for...

    I build my own PC desktop[s] - have since the last millenium - currently I like ASUS as a 'best bang for buck' m/board and graphics

    drawing is something I do; cintiq/painter/sai2 mostly, with xara for vectors... but three lines is always just three lines, its all in the way you draw 'em

    I imagine poor Theo rocking back and forth in a corner muttering something like I only asked for a simple opinion.

    SAI2? My daughter used SAI for a year or two then suddenly stopped. She wobbles around the lower edge of the Autistic spectrum (depending which specialist she sees) so there's likely no particular reason to her stopping. She uses MediBang, but Krita had a spell in the spotlight for a while as well.

    SAI2 is version 2 of the original SAI - it is beta ['technical preview'], but that is not a problem for me - it is way more advanced than the original and you can run it for free on the ver 1 licence:

    never really got on with krita but it's a general purpose program... SAI isn't, it's a dedicated line-art/colouring tool and that's all it effectively does better than anything else I know, but if you want filters plugins printing scanning effects fancy brushes or anything else, you need another program that you can interface with via PSD format

    @Theo
    - sorry about the digressions - how much is your budget, always the question before you even start....

    MacBook Pro? I've used one of these for 6-7 years, and it's still going strong.

    Not usually the first choice for someone who wants to run Windows-only software..
