Hello. ATM I have and using an HP DV9000. It has: It's at 1.83 Ghz(Intel G5600) with 2GB Ram under Vista using GeForce Go 7600 The thing is, I'm using this laptop for everything. Photography stuff, music, videos, a game or two, surfing, MSN, etc. I have an old desktop that I considered high-end when I bought it a few years ago. I'd like to use it for ONLY my photo editing. Photoshop, Lightroom, etc. ATM, it's under Ubuntu 8.04. It seems slow so what should I upgrade? I'm assuming my motherboard is fine, I don't think I'll need SATA2. Or would I? Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard AMD XP 2500+ ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 1GB Ram Would I still be better off with the notebook, or should I upgrade my desktop? If so, what should I upgrade and if you could, suggest a product. btw, I'd really rather have a dedicated computer for just my photo editing.
