Hello everyone,
I'm starting my university course in architecture next month and was wondering which laptop would be better. For this course I will have to run Revit, AutoCAD and Adobe programs like Photoshop and InDesign. I'd also like to run some of these programs simultaneously.
I'm looking at these two laptops:
This one recommended by my university (the HP ZBook).

Or this one. (Only English page I could find about this laptop).

The second one is about 100 euros more.

Thanks

The quadro 1000M is not a good option. The GTX 960 is much better:

Get the second one. But at 1100 Euros its not a very good deal. If these are the only choices then go for it, however I recommend you look into the new Pascal GPUs for laptops. These would absolutely destroy any kind of performance the 960M could offer:

Maybe waiting a little bit could be worth a lot...

Thanks a bunch for the reply. Yeah the price isn't great, but pretty normal here in the Netherlands. I'll go for the 2nd laptop then.
