In Topic: 17 inch notebook recommendation for editing and presentation

30 October 2015 - 04:51 PM

I looked at gaming laptops. I settled on MSI, got a laptop with top end dedicated graphics, 32GB RAM, three hard disks inside, with my operating system on a SSD (I swapped the optical drive for a hard drive), HD screen etc etc. I'm totally happy with it, way better value than a MacBook with specs that a MacBook can't match. However, I've always been a Windows users. This makes the choice easy for me.

I wouldn't buy L&M SOLA lights. Down the road you will find the batteries don't hold a charge and then you have no option except throwing them away, as you cannot replace the batteries. 


Lights are always a good investment. If you change your rig you can still use the lights from the old rig. It's best to go for the best you can get, so most power plus changeable batteries, in your budget range.

You can't have too much light. All the powerful lights have variable power settings, so you can max them out for your wide shots, and dial them back for closeups.
