Looking for a Laptop spec

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm looking for a laptop.

Main use: Work

Programs: AutoCAD, REVIT, Naviswork, Infrawork, Civil3D, Office, Chrome.

Must: numpad; battery time; "professional looking"; quiet

I'm not sure about a dedicated graphic card, in my last experience with laptops I learnt that graphic card is igual to temperature issues..

I'm not looking for a high-end working laptop, so I'm ready for some sacrifices in pro of a budget product, I'm not looking for: Display size, 4k, touch, rgb, tablet-mode;

The main question at this point is the balance between computing power for the programs and the mobility/budget product that I'm looking for.

Hope you guys can help me. Also, is the first time that I post here, so be patient xD

Thanks

Welcome to the forums.

 

Perhaps look into something like a Lenovo ThinkPad P52s or HP Zbook 15v G5 for that Quadro chip. It isn't the fanciest chip around, but should handle most entry to mid level workflows just fine.

How about that question on graphic card on laptops? is there any temperature or noise problems with quadros on laptops?

Where are you from? Budget? Prefer min how many hours of battery life? Any preference on weight? Mind low sRGB display and non-upgradable RAM? Need Quadro?
