Optimal laptop for CAD

In reply to: I have $2000, Which laptop I should buy for AutoCAD work?

HP ZBook Studio G3 is compatible with many CAD programs including most latest Autodesk products and solidworks. It’s quite solid when you look at the specs: Windows 7 with 15.6 inch screen and has a FHD screen, NVIDIA Quadro M1000M graphic card (2GB), processor: quad core Intel i7 with 6MB cache, 16GB RAM - which can be upgraded if need be and 512GB SSD memory. It supports many CAD programs including BricsCAD, Keyshot 6 Pro, AutoCad latest versions, TurboCAD, CATIA and Moi3d. The laptop costs about $2000.

Long story but can't recommend that company.

Try some 1K buck Asus ROG with 16GB DDR4, i7, 960m etc. Swap the HDD for SSD and fly.
