Question

Gaming vs Workstation Laptop f/ Architecture/Design Student?

Heading back to school for a Master's in Interior Design and will be running AutoCAD and Photoshop heavily, with some Revit and 3ds Max. My budget is up to $2000 - less is best, of course, and on the other hand I'm willing to go slightly over if it is justified.

I ordered a MSI Stealth Pro (i7 6th gen, sata+ssd, 16gb mem, 17" screen, GeForce gaming graphics card), but it's not too late to cancel the order. I am having second thoughts now, after reading about workstation laptops and the benefits of their graphics cards over gaming cards. But spec for spec, this still seems like the best bet for the price. Please, any suggestions would be so appreciated!
