Hey everyone. I have recently gotten back into eq. I am planning on getting a new laptop for personal use and wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions on one that might be capable of boxing 12 - 18 accounts. Anything that I should look out for/consider when deciding on a laptop?

1. An independent graphic card is necessary.
2. RAM 16G+ for box 12-18.
3. 14" laptop screen size, with 1366 x 768 resolution, is not big enough for so many EQ UI windows, unless you use an external monitor.
4. 15"/17" laptops support 1920 x 1080 resolution. But as I am using a 17" one, the screen space is still not enough.

So, conclusion = laptop performance is not a big problem to run EQ, but screen space is.

thank you very much for the responses. As for my specific needs personally, I do plan on moving around as i will be using this for a graduate program as well. I plan on playing or plugging into my dual monitors when I am home but using it as a desktop replacement. Again, thank you for your advice and any further suggestions or specs would be appreciated.
