Many thanks to all for the advice! I just made a purchase of an EVOC 17" PC701 w/ i7-10875 8-thread processor, 8GB NVidia GeForce RTX2070 Max-Q video card, 2 TB SSD drive & 32 GB RAM from HIDevolution- who were very helpful!
Hello- I'm looking to purchase a new laptop which I use for modeling w/ a 2nd screen. For meetings, I unplug and take it with me- so prefer a 17" monitor. I don't render images much at this point, but may begin to if the computer is capable. Any input regarding Intel i7 vs. i9 vs other processors would be much appreciated, as well for graphics card and RAM, for a max $2000 budget.
