What is the best laptop for architectural design?

2013-09-05, 5:51 AM

I mostly need if for revit. I currently have a lenovo thinkpad T61. It has been great but is getting old, and I think it is about to crap out. I would like to stay with lenovo but im up for any suggestions.

Hello,

 

It might be best to look at the requirements for the architectural design software that you want to run, and then look at which systems match those specifications.

What you are willing to spend is also an issue. The new W540 looks OK (improved internals, but worse user experience than T61-era). I'm assuming you are on a 1920x1200 screen or use external monitors exclusively.

W series with quadro is definitely something you should consider for Revit or Solidworks etc.
