Wiring for my work station is a mess for years and the power supply also got me worry since it kept on thunder storm raining these few days. So, after do some searching, bought a piece of Targus Smart Surge 6, with cost of RM 122.
It is time to change laptop since the old Acer Aspire 5750G is getting real slow while photo editing, especially edit those large RAW DNG files from Pentax K-1. My purposes for the laptop are to do photo editing (Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, Affinity Photo) and music composition (Cockos Reaper, VST, audio recording). Therefore, specs such as SSD, storage size, nice wide angle view of display, processor and RAM are my concerns.
Initially, wanted to get an Illegear Z7 with GTX960M (RM 5414) since my colleague (Mr. Tim) recommend it. Unfortunately it is out of stock with just GTX 970M which increase the price by another RM800+, it just way out of budget for a non-gamer like me. So, went to Digital Mall and purchased another laptop that recommend by Mr. Tim, the Lenovo Ideapad 700 17-inch.
In my case, i will temporary store current Raper project with all media files in SSD for faster access. Since there is only 128GB SSD, it will soon become full after few projects. One solution for me, once the project done, project file and media files that it used will be moved to HDD.
Steps is easy, click on File -> Save Project As -> a windows will prompt as image above, click on 3rd option: “Move all media into project directory” -> choose the drive and folder to save.Then i’ll those extra media files and project files stored in: This PC > Documents > Reaper Media.
Partner of mine got me a amazing gift on birthday, the long awaited full frame DSLR by Pentax, Pentax K-1.
After considering products from other big boys such as Sony A7ii, Canon 5D Mark iii and Nikon D750, decided to stay in Pentax system with a reason, the three old limited lens. Where in the west, users called it as Pentax Holy Trinity and named as Pentax Three Princesses 宾得三公主) in the east.
