Laptop for solidworks and adobe programs

My uni course requires: Operation System: Windows 10 (1709 release)
Processor / CPU: Intel Core i5 or i7 or i9, minimum 4 cores (QUAD CORE)
Memory / RAM: 8GB or more
Graphics Card / GPU: NVIDIA Quadro K620 or above. Preferably latest ones such as GTX 980 Ti, GTX 1060, GTX 1070, GTX 1080, AMD RX 580, .

 

Currently looked into the dell g3 i7-8750H gtx 1060 for £990 and the dell g5 i5-8300H gtx 1060 for £899. Biggest issues when I looked at the laptops, generally all looked very flashy, the reason why I'm looking into the dell g series.

I was going to say the Asus Vivobook with the i7 8550U and MX150 is perfect for what you want, it's a great cost effective laptop around 650~700 pounds that's extremely light and good looking (professional looking) while providing more than sufficient horse power for your tasks.

 

Funny enough I think this laptop is SO attractive that it end up out of stock in the entire United Kingdom from my quick search... what a bummer.

Are you buying in UK? Budget? Usage? Any preference on weight, display quality (sRGB) and battery life?

Gonna be buying in UK, budget around 900 since I can get £300 back from my uni due a laptop scheme, in terms of weight I have no issue, only want the laptop to be sleek. The quality of the screen only needs to be reasonable not looking for the best, and battery life not really an issue for me.
