    what kind of money would i need to spend to smoothly run photoshop CS2 on?

    the hockey tourny i just shot one had 1 gig the other 512mb....both seemed good, although the guys 512mb had no other programs on it..... i would also limit the crap on the laptop....

    i'd like to almost have the same set up...laptop and quality printer to take to events and print photos instantly....but would LOVE a FAST laptop for minimal buckso_O?

    came across the Acer line.....good bang for buck...i want fast ideally with a quallity graphics card too

    this is a bit more than i want to spend....but seems to have lots

    id go with 1 gig of memory to be future proof.

    between the ones u chose, id go with the last one. it includes some of everything. 1gb of fast ddr2 667memory, 100gb sata hard disk, radeon x1400, card reader, etc. sounds very capable to me

    as for hooking up three LCDs, im not sure if its possible on a laptop. but u can hook up at least one and have it show another desktop or just extent ur one desktop across both screens.
