Where are you from? Preferred max weight in kg/lbs and min battery life in hours? Do you need Quadro? Any special/other requirements?

Am in US. Max weight should 4lb if it is possible, of course less is better. I don't need Quadro, i just need a gpu to help the rendering go smoothly. Special features will be like touch screen and also 2 in 1 style. But 2 in 1 style is not a deal breaker to me at all if i found the rest of the specs is good.

Thank you

I would call 2 in 1 style with pen support a deal breaker. Digital note taking changed my entire college study life for the better in huge ways. 

 

I would say the best option in this segment is the Lenovo Yoga 730 15”, followed by the HP Spectre X360 15”. You can get the cheaper Lenovo Flex 5 or Dell Inspiron 7000 15” 2-in-1, but the build quality and component quality won’t be as good.

 

Keep in mind, these laptops will be slower in CAD than the XPS 15, which is better cooled and has a more powerful GPU. But these devices are much more flexible (haha). Unless you get a drafting job while you are in school, you won’t be spending nearly as much time in CAD as you do taking note and doing other lighter stuff.

You have a point there, since i have a gaming pc at home so i might just use it for projects. I want the laptop to have a gpu just in that rare case it might happen 

Thank you

better cooled

XPS 15 9570 has bad cooling

 

@Moonlight warlock Can consider Thinkpad X1 Extreme (i7-8750H+1050TI MQ). Better QC, better keyboard and slightly better cooling than XPS 15 9570

 

Ideapad 720s 15, Yoga 720 15 and Yoga 730 15 are slightly heavier than 4 lbs

 

Will not recommend XPS 15 9575 unless you don't mind the non-upgradable RAM. Also HP Spectre x360 15 with KBL-G or i7-8750H+1050TI MQ due to bad cooling (MX150 model is fine)
