Lenovo Ideapad 700: 17ISK (80RV007HMJ) Owner Review

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.

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.

Pentax K-1: Image Sync and Smartphone with IR (Infrared) blaster

There are few ways to trigger shutter of Pentax K-1 remotely, currently i’m using Pentax Remote C Set, Smartphone with IR (Infrared) blaster and Pentax official app “Image Sync” for Android.

i) Pentax Remote Control C Set: a free gift from Pentax2u.com, not the latest model of infrared remote control but works well with Pentax K-1.

ii) Image Sync: it is handy but also tricky / buggy for current version, better to read through official site: Manual before use it.
