I am studying 2d anim. & plan on buying myself a new computer setup & wacom tablet... with the intention of also using it for 3d animation software after I'm done this program and move on to 3d studies.. (I have done some 3d studies previously) but went on to study other things and am just now coming back to animation.
Anyways, I was hoping to get some advice on what people find is more useful to use for their work.. Laptop or Desktop?
We will have our desktop computers to use @ the school... but I am wondering if It is going to be better to invest in a desktop for at home... or... if having a laptop is goin to come in more handy being portable?
I imagine I won't need to bring a PC to school... since... there will be one there.... so the only major plus sides i can see is if i want to bring my work with me elsewhere... or sit at a cafe/library or something along that line..
Also for people working in the animation industry... If you are not at the office working... do you use a laptop to work at all? Or mostly prefer desktops?
Any input would be appreciated...
I'm gonna throw down a good 2-3 grand I imagine so I want to make it count.
Also gonna pick up a wacom intuos4.... not sure if a medium or large will be better.. (Medium more portable) but is the drawing surface enough?
