Next month I am going to study and I need a good laptop. It's a engineering study and my university advises the Zbook studio G3: http://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?sel=NTB&...
CPU: i7 6700HQ
GPU: Nvidia quadro M1000M 4gb
HDD: 256 gb SSD
Warranty: 3 years + very good and fast service
Price: 1387 pounds/1603/1792$

But I was thinking about the Lenovo Ideapad y700:
RAM: 16 GB
CPU: i7 6700HQ
GPU Nvidia GTX 960m 4gb
HDD: 1 TB HDD + 128 m.2 SSD
Warranty: 2 years
Price: 950 pounds/1100/1230$

I want to use my laptop for design software such as Solidworks and I also want to play games in my spare time (such as gta V or overwatch). I am not a hardcore gamer though.
I can get both laptops for the same prize (950 pounds/1100/1230$).
So I was wondering which laptop would be a better choice.
And is this (https://gaming.msi.com/article/do-you-know-new-nvidia-q...) article true, so it doesn't matter if I game with the quadro or the GTX?
Thanks in advance.

The Nvidia Quadro in the HP will be more optimized for CAD and programs like Solidworks. It is a "workstation" level graphics card. So, if that is the more important aspect to you, then I would likely go for a computer with a Quadro over one with a more "gaming" type card like the Nvidia GTX 960m.
