Laptop for 3D modelling

Jun 11, 2015 11:54PM PDT

G'day mates. My name is Leto.

I am looking for a powerful mobile work station for 3D modelling and Unreal Engine 4.
High complexity work to be performed.
I dont care about design, screen size, battery life and other irrelevant stuff. It just must be powerful.
I consider machines like Thinkpad w540 as crap, so I ask you not to suggest any tricky-designed, or with not needed features laptops which are in top lists but in reality not usable.
Must be roughly a piece of good hardware.
Must be a fair value and oriented for at least 4 years of use.
Price limit is about 3000 AUD.

Stop looking for one month. Why?

Windows 10 is rolling out and yes, you don't care. The thing is that a lot of new machines are coming out along with this rollout. If you pull the trigger now you will be picking from machines that have been around a little longer than normal.
