    The E-450 is not a very fast CPU and netbooks are generally too weak for such programs. But what are the specs of your current laptop?

    OK, so, to be clear, your current laptop is an Intel Atom, and you're looking to upgrade to an AMD E-450 for better performance in Maya.

    Well, neither of these processors are really intended for this kind of work. You'd want to be looking to move up to a fully fledged laptop for that kind of use, and a carefully chosen one at that.

    That said, even the cheapest of technologically current desktops should be a very significant step up from a netbook or low-end laptop for this kind of work.

    If we're just talking Maya use then your main concern is CPU speed, and/or more cores. A good amount of RAM is also a must, say 4GB minimum. Most times you will be doing Software rendering anyways (maybe even using a program like MentalRay along with it), so CPU speed is a big factor here. If Hardware rendering is important then you need to look at much beefier video cards, or at least something more capable, say mid to high end, preferably workstation cards like the Nvidia Quadro or AMD FireGL, but you could get away with mid range gaming cards.

    The big question is budget. What kind of price range are you looking at? You'd be hard pressed to find any laptop sub $500 that will be adequate enough for Maya. In fact I would probably double that as your starting range.

    Is it that you have insufficient space for a desktop? It'd be much cheaper.

    It's probably hypothetically possible but it might not be hugely enjoyable. I repeat - does it HAVE to be a laptop? You could do this in a desktop for a fraction of the price.
