suitable laptop for astrophotography

Postby Martindavos » Tue Oct 18, 2016 10:14 am

Hi all, my current laptop is on its way out and I am looking to purchase a new one. My budget isn't great, as far as laptops go (£350), but I was wondering if there are any specific specifications I should be looking for. I have been looking at a couple of Lenovo's on Amazon which has a vast price range. Any hints/tips on what I should be looking for to steer me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance
