Hello Member, 

 

I am looking for a laptop that can handle all my 3D modelling and CAD work. I have a budget of $1000-$1200 only. I researched some websites like techradar, laptopify etc but I am still in confusion about which laptop to select. 

 

I have shortlisted Lenovo ThinkPad P50 & HP ZBook Studio G3. I need your opinions, please help!

I'm sure either of those would be fine for AutoCAD.  AutoCAD is really light weight CAD, compared to things like SolidWorks and Creo.  I'd suggest going to AutoDesk's site and checking out their recommended specifications for a machine.

that's because those writers never used an autocad or know about autocad at all. It depends if it's for work or for school. For school any laptop with a decent dedicated (or any really) GPU will do just fine.

AutoCAD 2017 requirements.

 

I've supported different engineering software professionally for a while, and AutoCAD has the one of the lower system requirements.
