    Girlfriend wants a laptop...

    Looking to spend about £400 - £500 and needs a fairly big HD to run AutoCAD.

    Any suggestions? Looking for the best spec for the money.

    Cheers tech guys, don't know enough about the market to make comparisons.

    thanks rep added !

    I doubt the integrated graphics on either of them would be sufficient to run your CAD buddy, definitely do a bit of research on the graphics front if that's important for you on the laptop. A laptop with a dedicated graphics card would be best.

    Good comparison chart here: notebookcheck.net/Mob…tml
