I've been out of the game, so to speak, for a while now. I'm typing this from a Dell Latitude 6410 with a 1st gen i5, in a cafe in Italy where I currently work for a major UK tour operator. My side job is as a photographer and this laptop was the cheapest (£220 eBay) thing I could find with a 1600x900 screen that wasn't terrible and JUST ENOUGH grunt to run Lightroom, as well as cope with all the usual office tasks, browsing and 1080p watching. In the winter, I take photos of skiers and riders on the mountain and I would love to be able to take a better machine with me. However, I'm limited to flights as I sold my car last year. So: 1) Is it now possible to build a PC that is carry on sized and will run Photoshop? 2) Is it safe/wise to put my 24" Dell IPS screen in my checked in luggage surrounded by a mountain of clothes? I also want to do this on the cheap. Second-hand parts is fine, just wanting people's thoughts on whether or not it's possible. Discrete GPU is irrelevant as long as the CPU can run 1080p mkvs smoothly. Open to all ideas....!
