I'm a freelance illustrator and 3D animator, and I currently use my Asus ROG laptop with my wacom cintiq to produce work.

my laptop specs are:
GTX 970m
intel core i7 - 4710HQ 2.50 GHz
4 cores
32 GB RAM

this works brilliantly for me, but the combined weight of the huge laptop, and heavy graphics tablet makes carrying around my stuff hard, and risky.

i wanted to save up for a top of the line wacom MobileStudio pro "16, which is their all-in-one tablet PC. its specs are:

4GB Nvidia Quadro M1000M
3.3GHz Intel Core i7-6567U
16GB DDR3 SDRAM 1,600MHz

everything else seems okay, but I really needed to know more about the Quadro card, and if I could still illustrate, run maya, 3DSMAX, render images and short animations, and 3D sculpt/model with those tablet PC specs, before I spend about £3000 on it.

if you've made it this far, thank you SO so much for even bothering to read this....!

quadro cards are more stable than geforce cards. specific softwares like solidworks, catia, creo or nx work better with quadros.
there are specviewper 12.1 benchmarks in which a m1000m is better that a gtx1080 desktop for solidworks

3dsmax work really good with geforce cards
