Last week I went and finally bought a new laptop because my old one is over four years old and it was starting to kinda die on me; the sound card went to shit, the graphics card is terrible, and every time I tried to work on stuff in Photoshop it got to the point where the lag was so bad, I would have to wait maybe 30 seconds to a minute for a file to open or save. Oh, and it didn't help that my tablet drivers were always fucking up, too.
Anyway, I upgraded to an MSi gaming laptop (with some help from my bf, who picked a really nice one out) and omg. I can't tell you how awesome it is to have a 1920x1080 resolution (so much screen space!) and the actual power to run Photoshop and After Effects (or even Illustrator) at the same time with hardly any lag at all
. I'm talking about running a ridiculous number of programs with no lag, or hardly any if I'm really pushing it. THIS IS LIFE CHANGING GUYS. I can render things so much faster than before
But yes, here's my new laptop:
And let's see what else was I gonna say
Oh yeah! I'm nearly done for this semester! I only have one more final exam next Thursday, and then I'm freeeeee
I will probably open some commissions once I'm done my exams, but there's no guarantees. It really depends on how much I'm going to be working this holiday, how much time I need to catch up with friends and family (whom I've been neglecting for pretty much the past three or four months due to school) and of course all the time I'll need to recharge my batteries. Not to mention, I'm going to be spending a lot of time with my bf c:
However, if I do open commissions I will post an announcement in my journal as always! Happy Holidays, everyone!
