I got a laptop for school, and ended up spending a bit more than I would have for the same kind of specs in a desktop, but the portability is nice. Although, truth be told, it's not much more portable than a desktop. 10 pound 17.3 inch gaming laptop. Worth it, since I never have a problem with temperature.

I'm actually interested in getting a Surface Pro, a friend of mine got one and he draws on it all the time in class, although it feels like more of an accessory to me than a standalone machine.

One thing to think about with a desktop is upgradability. With most laptops, you're lucky if you can upgrade the RAM. While with a Desktop, you could spend 6-700 on something more basic, and add a beefy Graphics card or more ram later.

You should be perfect then, you can find a shitton of decent laptops under that price. Just make sure that the laptop has an intel i5 or better, good screen and ram, and good reviews. Those specs will also let you easily run minecraft and those types of games.

Here's a random one I pulled out of amazon with good enough specs.

If you don't need the portability, I would recommend building a Desktop, you'd get alot more for your money that way. But if you do need a laptop.
www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006740%204021%20600004420%20600003988%20600004804&IsNodeId=1&name=8GB

Some basic specs laid out there.
Ram is one of the more important things for artsy stuff. For gaming 2-4GB is plenty, but for Photoshop having more is nice. Any kind of rendering takes alot of RAM, so video/photo editing etc..
An i5 processor would likely be fine, if you want more speed going for an i7 processor would do it, but may no be necessary if you don't play anything Graphics intensive.
GPU/Video Card isn't super important for the same reason. Getting something with an Nvidia or AMD card would give better performance in games, and some extra features in Photoshop that are entirely optional.

Also, if the idea of the wacom companion intrigues you, look at the Microsoft surface pro. It's the exact same tech as in the wacom, but without the overpricing.

Don't know if it's within your price range

I wish, I'm probably looking for something as cheap as possible while still being good.

Most would probably do you fine as long as it has a good cpu, screen, and ram. Is there any specific price range you're looking for or anything else you're hoping to use the laptop for?

As cheap as possible would be good, maybe like $700 at the most. I've never bought a laptop before so I'm not really sure what a reasonable price would be.
I'd probably only use it for artsy stuff, internet, and probably some games like minecraft and sims.

Look at reviews and take the one with the best screen, and 8GB (or more) of RAM.
