What should artists look for when choosing a work laptop?

  • productive processor. Because the software, as we have already noted, is “heavy”.
  • discrete video card. It is the video card that bears the lion's share of the load when working with graphics and rendering, so it's better to choose a discrete one.
  • Quality screen. With correct color reproduction and good coverage of working digital spaces (for example, 100% sRGB). When it comes to printing or graphic design, screens can be certified - for example, by Pantone or TÜV Rheinland.
  • High capacity SSD. Graphics projects take up a lot of memory, so it's best to have at least 512 GB "on board".
  • The cost of a laptop largely depends on the model of the video card. And in this regard, fresh AMD discrete graphics cards look especially attractive. They already offer excellent performance, and in combination with Ryzen processors, they look simply amazing.

It's all about several proprietary AMD technologies that unlock the full potential of this duo. These include AMD SmartShift technology, which links the processor and graphics for faster response to different workloads, and AMD Smart Access Memory technology, which allows the processor to use the fast memory of the video card through the PCI Express interface. Together, they provide a noticeable performance boost in many common tasks.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch

Apple has released a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with a significant hardware upgrade, and it's undoubtedly one of the best laptops for artists:

It now includes its own M1 chip (rather than an Intel processor), allowing the 13-inch MacBook Pro (M1, 2020) to deliver impressive performance.

With the power of the M1 chip, you can easily edit 4K and even 8K content while running demanding graphics applications.

But most importantly, the 13-inch MacBook Pro (M1, 2020) has the longest battery life of any MacBook.

If you need a MacBook Pro for your graphic design work, but the 16-inch model above is too big, then the 13-inch MacBook Pro is the best gaming tool you have.
