Hi everyone :)

I'm about to buy a new laptop and would like your advice for deciding which one would be better. I'm an industrial designer student, so I'll be using software like Adobe CS6 and SolidWorks, some of them at the same time maybe, and I'm planning taking it to school if needed.

better foe what purpose? gaming?

what are the prices you pay?

you don't need 16GB of memory
Maybe gaming, but mainly for any Adobe App and 3D modeling apps.

Price would be ok around 1900 USD

I'm planning to use it for many years, not only till I graduate, and we don't know what will be the requirements for computers in some years. That's also why I'm thinking of buying that kind of computer. And also I'm interested in HQ sound, and I think both are good options.
