anything ryzen. dont get intel because it has lower battery life and performs slower and runs hotter.

Doesn’t matter intel or ryzen

A few things very important cuz Animation course will do a lot of 3D rendering and the file sizes can be super big, including backups

CPU: At least intel i7 or ryzen 7
GPU: At least Nvidia or Radeon
Ram: at least 32GB
HDD: at least 1TB
Have built-in webcam & mic cuz some classes will be online

Good measure will be gaming laptops like Lenovo Legion, Asus G14, MSI, Razer

If money is not an issue...

Go for intel i9 or Ryzen 9
RTX 3000 series
64GB ram
10TB

Oh yeah... i will also consider getting wifi 6 and upgrade home internet to 1Gbps
