Apple Mac requirements for Archicad


Morning Community,

I am new to this industry and currently in my second year studying. I am currently using my design laptop and in the last project we did I really struggled with renders. They either took very long or would render black. I have come to the conclusion that I need either a new laptop or new desktop. I have been using apple for many years so would prefer not to switch but am struggling to find information on what to buy. I would like something that would atleast work for the first year or two when I start working. Can anyone assist? I have attached my current system specs which I have been told is atrocious but it is all greek to me!

Morning, These are the options in Zambia. Any direction? As I said all the technical details confuses me.
