The Dell M50 is fantastic in Maya. It's in their workstation section.
It's neither sexy nor light, but it's packing a Quadro chip. I tested one for work and after wiping the XP off of it and going with Win2K, it screamed. The mobile nVidia's and XP are notorious for not playing nice with Maya.

Thx to webjunkie and phatgroovn!
I like to ask is it alright to run Maya on a Compaq's notebook with ATI mobility redeon 7500 3D Garphics. I checked the Alias/Wavefront homepage, there is no detail on this yet!

hehe.. how about a budget notebook? ;)
i am going to be going back to school, and i wish i could afford a notebook with a Quadro card in it.. anything for a compromise?
just wondering if anyone knows any good ones off hand :)

not really. unless u wanna go and spend like $3000 on a diff gfx card. OR u could buy a version of the quadro from companys such as MSI for like 50%. I reccomend ATI all the way.

I checked the Compaq online store, they have Compaq Evo Notebook N800w cost at least US$3889. It's one like my dream machine but it cost too much! Do you guy know any budget notebook around? Thx.

So Maya and ATi play well together?
i run a GF4 4400... and it works perfectly... would you recommend ATi over NVidia?
on a laptop anyway?

Apple PowerBook w/1GHz G4, 1GB RAM, ATI Radeon 9000 Mobility w/ 64MB...

i used to have a powerbook ti and used maya 4 for osx, it was ok but mac is just slow compared to a pc. i would not recommend the mac although it is a nicer looking piece of hardware. the 3d benchmarks just don't even compare to a windows laptop. I couldn't even play quake III at a normal framerate with 512mb of memory and a radeon. (irrevelant kind of but demonstrates shooty openGL support) plus the titanium gets damaged SO easily, i had mine for 2 days and i accidentaly dented it. mac tibooks are just really overpriced compared to what you can get in the pc realm. they have the education discount, but that only hacks off about 100$. :shrug:
