I wanna buy a laptop for mostly using rhino + grasshopper and doing kangaroo simulations and stuff.
My budget limit will be 1750€, so I have some lenovo products in mind.
In general for me a 16inch display is important…
So maybe someone has a recommandation on Lenovo Products?
There are some models I’m currently thinking about…
“Slim” on a laptop with a dedicated GPU, will cause lots of thermal problems = noise. Do not underestimate this if you plan to work with such a system all day. I don’t know about Lenovo laptops in particular, but if you can, go to a local store and see if you can test a laptop under load.
Oh and I forgot to mention, as others have pointed out thermal dissipation is poor in notebooks. Previous MSIs I had could cook eggs on the sound bar hahah.
I actually quite like the thermals on the Maingear model but I always have a Cooler Master fan pad underneath it to lift it up and promote additional airflow.
I’m a bit abusive to my hardware and have left it on under moderate GPU load for days on end in 110 degree weather (garage) and not had any issues.
I bring it to job sites frequently (think lots of saw dust and drywall dust) and it’s survived well.
Not promoting treating it that way but just saying I’ve been happy with it thermal wise but the fan pad definitely helps and is slim enough to pack it all into a standard backpack with the laptop, fan pad, and external mobile monitor all together.
