    Default Recommended laptops ?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi there glad I've found this forum as there seems to be a lot of very knowledgeable users on here.

    I need a laptop around the £1000 (UK) or less price range that will run the latest version of Autocad. I realise there's laptops priced around £1500, £2000 that will definitely run it but if I'm on a budget of £1000 or less is there anything in particular that would run it ? Not exactly sure what I need to be looking for besides it having a dedicated graphics card, but again I'm not sure what sort of graphics would be ok for it.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

    Will you be doing any 3D work on this laptop?
