I would like my laptop to have 8 or 16 gb ram, 2-4 gb graphic card..
I'm an architecture student..
i will be using it only for work. no gaming..
i want it to run smooth without any issues, shouldn't be heavy, i shouldnt find it uncomfortable, carrying it around.
i work on a few projects regularly other than academics, so i need a laptop to work outside home
that is reliable and performs well.
i am not sure if i should wait for a good laptop with 5th generation processor or just stick to 4th generation processor.
that is all i can think about right now,

thanks in advance.
