Good Laptop for running AutoDesk Programs


May 4, 2014
Hi Guys,

I am looking at getting the Acer Aspire V3-772G-9643 to use for school. I will be running AutoCAD, Revit and Photoshop.

The specs are:
i7 Processor 2.2/3.2 GHz
1TB Hard drive
8GB Ram
GeForce GTX 760M

Will this run these programs well? I don't want to have to deal with lag every 2 seconds.

I am also looking at the MSi GE70 2PE-010US Apache Pro:

i7 Processor 2.4 GHz
1TB 7200 rpm
12GB Ram
GeForce GTX 860M
1080p Anti-Glare

It's obvious that the latter is the better one but is it necessary? The Acer would cost me $999.99 and the MSi $1399.99. I want to be spending as little as possible on this but I don't want to cheap out at the same time and regret it.

Let me know what you guys think and thanks for the help.
