I’ve been using desktop with i7 4790K(4Core 8Thread) + GTX980 for several years in architectural school and in small company mainly using Rhinoceros and occasional Vray or Octane.
Some employers didn’t offered PC to me, so in that case I used my laptop and remote software to access the desktop resources.
Now I’m moving to US for my Masters degree in architecture and planning to purchase a good one that would last about 3 years.
I was expecting the laptop to replace my desktop which should have good performance in both CPU and GPU.
Intel 8 Core CPU and RTX seemed good combination and my final choices are XPS15/17 or RazerBlade15 but they are very pricey.
Considering added 3 years of accidental damage support, they are over 3000 dollars and I was wondering if any professionals in architecture ever buy such laptops.
It could be investment but I was curious if it’s waste of money.
