Laptop for interior designers and architects


Sep 7, 2015
This year I will be starting on NABA (Milano) MA in Interior design. I am used to using PC with 2 big screens, so it's really strange for me to use a lap top, but now I need it. Softwares that I will be using are Autocad, 3d Max, Photoshop, Illustrator, Maya, etc, so I really need a powerful machine. Also screen must be 17 inch or more. I care for battery life, heat production.I am planning to pay around 1000 euros (1115.93 US Dollar).

Here I have an offer I received from the seller, can you tell me what you think:

The seller did not include Dell or LG and I love those, so u can recommend me some of those too.
Thank you in advance


Of all these listed devices, I would recommend the ASUS N751. It has a powerful combination of a true quad-core i7 CPU and a GTX 950M graphics card, the pairing of which provides excellent performance under offline rendering applications. If you can confirm that the N751 has an IPS display, this will help you even more, as the accurate colors will be of tremendous benefit to your Interior Design programs.
