guys…plz help

It depends on what kind of movie you are planning to make. You could make a 10 hour animated movie on a 7 year old, crappy laptop if you wanted to, by making it simple. It is all about choosing the right level.

If you on the other hand are planning to create something that looks like Avatar/Transformers, then you would want a much better computer.

GustavN makes some good points.

Best thing is to do some planning. Decide the level of detail you want, make some models or grab some free ones that are similar, and do some rendering tests. If it’s taking too long, adjust your expectations or upgrade your hardware.

If I’m not mistaken, that’s what everyone does and no one can really answer those questions besides you. Too many subjective variables.
