    Laptop purchase help

    I'm back with a request for opinions please ......... I have my list narrowed down to 3 laptops. All 3 are processor i7-10750H, graphics RTX 2070 Max-Q, NVMe SSD, and 16Gb RAM [which I'm certain I can expand on 2 and assume I can on the other one]. In order of price, from least to more: Dell G5 (model gn5500ehwkh) from Dell, Acer Predator Helios 300 (model PH317-54-70ED) from Costco, and MSI GS66 Stealth (model GS66005) from Best Buy. The only other big difference between them, as far as I can tell, is that the Acer Predator is 17" screen [with weight to go with it] while the Dell & MSI are 15.6". Oh, and the Dell has 512Gb SSD while the other two are 1Tb [I currently have that size drive but am only using 120Gb]. Any and all thoughts will be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance,

    Thank you, Mark! I had seen your post about 'notebookreview' and the most current info I could find is 2017. I'll try again; maybe I was in the wrong place. How I'll use the machine is everything & anything as well, lol. I'm learning CA as I go and use the cameras a lot. Rendering will be used, once I have a computer than can handle it. I'll also be using vanilla-AutoCAD for other work, but that's way less intense than CA cameras & rendering. I need to be mobile or else I'd go desktop. I'm thinking to go RTX2070 or better [i.e. Max, Super] and i7-10th gen or better. I'm on the fence about 15.6" or 17" - my current is 15.6" and works fine, but I'm not averse to a 17" [which usually has 10-key with the keyboard] except for the weight. And I'm aiming for M2-SSD. Most of my stuff is cloud kept so I don't need a lot of space but I know it can impact performance; I've had this computer at least 4 years and am using less than 120Gb out of 1Tb. I don't know what else to focus on to make a choice, besides price.

    Laptop purchase help

    Hello all, I need a new laptop much sooner than later. I've been researching and looking at all the options and frankly it's all starting to look the same. I know some brands are 'better' than others, but does it just come down to whether you prefer Chevy or Ford? What do I stay away from? I'm finding a 17" w/i7-10th gen and RTX 2070 Max that costs less than a 15.3" w/seemingly the same specs. I'd like to keep the cost under $1500 but can flex some; I need it to last a few years. Any advice for the weary and decision-frozen? Thank you for your thoughts, Kt

  5. thank you Kbird1! That's very helpful Kt
  6. I haven't watched any videos yet; I've only seen 'hints' about it in the forum. We're working on improving our systems and I've seen lots of comments about needing a different of graphics card. This has me wondering if we should be prepared in the next couple months or the next couple years. It looks like lately CA has been releasing mid-year every year?
  7. What is the expected release date of X13?
  8. Hello, Is there a way to get CA to skip numbers in a Cabinet Schedule? I'm trying to get the circled numbers on the cabinet layouts to match the numbers that will be on the boxes when they're delivered to the site. Oftentimes there's additional line items that are in the middle of the order that I don't need labeled on the plan so I need to skip those numbers. TIA! Kt [using Premier X12]
