Heya Designers / Illustrators. I had a stockpile of spare textures that I wasn’t going to use, so I decided to give some of them away!

What’s inside? 16 textures in .JPG format sized 15” x 15” @ 300DPI (4500px x 4500px)

Contact sheet of included textures: http://i.imgur.com/6XioU14.jpg

I think some of them are pretty darn cool, hopefully you find them useful!

Yes that means that you cannot upload elsewhere for 30 days.

And no, your earnings won’t retroactively count if you choose to go exclusive again. It isn’t an option that is meant to be toggled on and off.

Autoplay sounds Autoplay video Tons of pop up tabs Pop Up Chat “Can I Help You?” Window – Will immediately close the page and never return Top navigation bars with 10+ choices Cheesy animations that look dated circa 2002.

I would suggest an ASUS such as this:

I live in the US so I am unsure of hardware prices overseas, so I tried to pick something on the cheaper side. But as you can see for $1000 US this is a very powerful machine with a Haswell i7. The main downside is that this particular laptop is not 1080p, so I would look for a 1080p version.

If you can get over the need for a light laptop, these are absolute beasts:

I use I Need a Budget 4 – it’s simple and quite effective.

That’s inaccurate. The hardware within an Apple is no higher quality than what you’ll find in premium PC components (and arguably lower).
I’m pretty sure you don’t own a Mac. And I’m pretty sure my desktop computer costs more than a brand new iMac, that should say it’s “high quality” and considering parts of it are dead or dying and it’s 2 years old, and my mac is 4 years old and still on fire… well, I’ll say 100% Apple has better quality hardware, if not, the software is more optimized not to murder the hardware it’s running on! :)

I’ve owned several macs in my lifetime, and currently do own one that I use every day.

I’ve also built about 15 PCs in my lifetime and have been building PCs for well over 10 years now.

The difference is I base my thoughts on long term hardware studies, and facts, and not personal opinion.

Take a look at page 6 here: http://www.squaretrade.com/htm/pdf/SquareTrade_laptop_reliability_1109.pdf

My current PC is at the login screen after pushing power in about 8 seconds, and absolutely decimates my top of the line i7 iMac in terms of pure power. Different machines for different purposes. Also price does not equal quality. It never has. For example ASUS is far from being the most expensive PC’s on the market, but they are among the very best in terms of quality – meanwhile HP charges an arm and a leg for some of its machines that use some really substandard parts.

That’s the cool part about building your own PC, you can pick each part individually based on which manufacturer makes the highest quality part available for that specific purpose.

Apple makes some astonishingly good hardware, no doubt about it, but if you’re looking for either the best value, or most powerful, PC holds both of those titles currently.

And…... What’s premium PC? Are they the Lenovos, etc?

ASUS is my brand of choice. Their laptops have the lowest 4 year failure rate of any manufacturer (including Apple).

Mac book is lightning fast if you use it for webdesign and coding work. For print, 3D, render and composting is lightning slow :) pity they have only 16GB ram memory max. And OSX always had a poor memory management. And not to mention about the price.
Uhm? One word! Mavericks! It kills absolutely every computer OS I’ve put my hands on, and no offence, I have a desktop computer, high end, it’s dying, my MacBook is older than my computer… still working perfectly! Hardware and software wise, Apple have expensive stuff but it’s of higher quality! I’ve personally shared your opinion until I purchased one!
