    Question Suggestion for laptop.

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello,
    I am an Interior Designer , working on software's like AutoCad , 3DS Max , Sketchup, CoralDraw, MS Office , Adobe Suite etc.
    Presently, I'm thinking of purchasing a new laptop( available in India), with a Max. Price of Rs. 80,000( Indian currency) I.e; about 1100$ .
    Although, I have done my research work on net, still I'm highly confused.
    But still, I guess, Dell and HP are good choices.
    Any experienced suggestion would be highly appreciated.
    The details are not the details, they make the design.

    What models are you looking at specifically and what are their specs?

    As I have mentioned earlier, I have been searching internet for suggestions. So my only priority is , quick hassle free output from my laptop. As far as specs. Are concerned, any machine which can run all the below mentioned software's smoothly , will be good enough for me.

    Both of my recommendations would probably exceed your budget.

    I can extend my budget to Rs. 1,00,000 , that's the highest I can go.

    Take a look at the Dell Precision 5510.

    How about ASUS!! They mostly deal in hardcore gaming laptops , which ,I guess, is great for designers!

    Also I'm afraid Dell 5510 is way above my budget.
    Moreover, the one which my pocket will allow has i5 CPU. I7 is for above $2200

    I'd expect them to be just as expensive if not more than the Dell I mentioned but I haven't checked in quite some time.

    The lenovo laptops (formerly IBM) are a top alternative to Dell and HP.
