I'll be starting school in the fall and will be working on their lab computers, my work computer and (don't laugh)... my little Compac laptop at home. It has 1.20GHz and 240MB RAM.
I've done several Maya tutorials successfully in wireframe - but very simple and small files - I'd imagine they'd get bigger and more complicated as I go along. I'd like to work at home as often as possible, (work/kids/home) what can I do to make the most of this little laptop. Memory? Math co-processor? Forget it - not gonna happen.
