    Need help! Laptop for Revit, CAD

    Can this laptop work well for Revit and CAD?
    • Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ with Intel HD graphics 530 (2.60 GHz, up to 3.50 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology, 6 MB L3 cache, 4 cores)
    • 16GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM
    • 500 GB SATA (7200 rpm)
    • 15.6″ diagonal FHD anti-glare LED backlit (1920 x 1080)
    • AMD FirePro™ W5170M (2 GB dedicated GDDR5)
    If not,
    what is the minimum specs?
    Please help me, thanks a lot.

    Looks good save the spinny HD - you really want, no need, an SSD these days.

    ...and many go "Green Team" (NVidia) for Autodesk-orientated builds - capable as AMD are, I've personally not had a lot of joy with them.

      There are some great deals on i7-7700HQ processors and GTX 1060 graphics cards which pair well together... should be able to find one with an SSD (and yes, you need one) for ~$1,000. What's your budget?

        Thanks, I have $1000 (max). 7700hq ok it's better 6700hq but gtx instead of quadro or firepro, I wonder. Is gtx1060 more powerful than W5170M in autodesk software? Are you getting a gtx for working?

            Don't worry about 7700 vs 6700 - at this performance level, that's not the concern. GTX1060 (mobile) annihilates the W5170M. Revit uses DX, so "gaming" cards like GTX work just as well as Quadro/FirePro.
