Hello To the group!
I would like to hear your advice, tips and suggestions as I am starting to search for a new laptop. I plan to use it for small scale architectural projects using Sketchup + VRay, Archicad and Revit. My budget is limited (800-900 Euro) and this might sound to be not enough, but I don't require very high detail photo realistic renderings. I would like your opinions about the best approach to choose the best machine without exceeding my budget.
The characteristics I should look are:
1. Processor type
2. Processor frequency
4. Graphic card and memory
5. SSD disc
Looking at the options I have in my country, the more realistic options is to go for 8GB RAM (I can add more RAM in the future) and the processors intel core i7 from 1.8 to 2.7 GHz.
For SSD discs I only can get up to 256GB and some machines have a second HHD disc for backup.
How would you approach all these characteristics and in what priorities?
