To run solidworks well you need a mid range gaming system or a workstation class laptop, will be at least near $1,000 range for anything decent with a good size solid state drive.

Post a link to where you can purchase things from, preferably on a site in English so people can give you some suggestions. Really any "gaming" laptop that has a dedicated video card will be OK. Those start about $750, at least in US. In the $1,000 range you will have better screens, larger solid state drives, faster CPUs and video cards.
