Hi all,
Could anybody help me to choose a good laptop for me.
Most used programs: AutoCAD, 3dsmax, Sketchup, photoshop cc, Microsoft office and browsers.
I usually open a lot of programs open that I can go back and forward between them. I would like a laptop that can handle them without starting lag or freeze especially when I am modeling an object. And availability of connecting an external monitor. I am ok if rendering or exporting part takes a little bit longer time.
I am not planning to play a game at all. And don’t do a video editing a lot.

FYI: My budget up to $3,000 if the better specs worst for my tasks. I can buy from any website in US.

I was looking at

$1,399 on Amazon

ASUS ROG Strix GL702VM-DB74 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 6700HQ (2.6 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 256 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB 17.3" FHD 1920 x 1080 Windows 10 Home 64-Bit (VR Ready)


$2,699 on Amazon

2017 MSI GT73VR TITAN Pro-425 17.3" 120Hz 5ms Display Extreme Gaming Laptop Core i7-7820HK GTX 1080 16GB 256GB NVMe SSD + 1TB VR Ready

Do I feel the a big difference if I spend twice more money for this laptop.

Or suggest a best laptop for my needs

Update: Forgot to mention that need a 17.3" display to work more comfortable

Thanks in advance

If you want my opinion why not get the Aorus x3 Plus v7. It runs Kabby Lake processor but its an overclockable processor which means it'll do a better job rendering and editing than the ROG or MSI's Laptop. Its about $2000 and it isnt running an unnecessary 1080(since you dont plan on gaming nor is a 1080 necessary to begin with)

I'd recommend getting the Gigabyte P57 v6 which is a 17.3" display or the Aorus X5 or Aorus X7. These all have a 17.3" display while having amazing performance :)
