    Are you sure you want to do this on a laptop? Max 9 is not usually used on laptops because the built-in video system and the CPU are not up to the task, especially if you are doing complex renders. Your garden-variety notebook that you get at an electronics store like CompUSA or Best Buy isn't going to work out.

    You can get a laptop that will run Max well, but it will cost anywhere from $2500 to $5000 depending on what you want inside of it. What you need is a workstation replacement "laptop" that weigh 5 to 8 kg because they really have desktop workstation components inside.

    Look at Alienware, Dell XPS, and HP - they sell various laptops that are suitable for this work, but a desktop with the same capabilities will be a lot less expensive.

    Hope this helps,
