I'm just about to start a college to study GIS and I need new notebook computer. I would like a one that will last me for awhile and that can run the ArcGIS and ERDAS Imagine programmes that are provided for students without any problems.
One that I'm looking for at the moment is Toshiba Satellite 70-A-11h.
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit (pre-installed) Processor: 4th generation Intel® Core™ i5-4200M processor with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 clock speed : 2.50 / 3.10 Turbo GHz internal resolution : 1,600 x 900 Hard disk capacity: 1 TB RAM: 8,192 (4,096 + 4,096) MB DDR3L RAM (1,600 MHz)
Could anybody tell me whether this is a good starter laptop for a GIS student or are some of the specifications a definite no no?
