It all depends on what you want to use it for, if doing lots of renderings and animations, then you will need the best machine you can buy with plenty of memory. However if you will be doing mainly 2 and 3d line drawings, depending on the file size and complexity of the drawings you will still need a decent laptop, but plenty of RAM is the priority. There are lots of pre-Christmas deals at the moment and prices of IT products will be rising sooner as they are bought and traded in US Dollars and since Brexit we are not doing that good in the exchange rate department.

Ideally you need to look at either a Dell or Lenovo laptop as they tend to be work based machines and a bit more robust than some other manufacturers.

Currys have a deal on several of their laptops, but like everything else shop around for the best price/spec you can get for your money

Good luck in whatever you do...

This is the one I was considering. Simmilar spec to the one you suggested.
It is mainly Autocad, very rarely would I have to sue Revit and that is just to look at draiwngs. But with Autocad I am using large maps, so need ram to load them properly I guess.

Is lenovo better than Hp?
