I'm graduating from highschool and my parents are buying me a laptop for next year as my graduation gift. next year im going to be an architecture student at boulder, but i may transfer to engineering depending on my interests and grades.
i know that i need something that probably has a i7 processor, and 4-8gb RAM, with probably 500gb memory as a minimum. i also need super high quality graphics and 3d rendering. i dont know what programs i will be using, but from some quick searching it might consist of AutoCAD, indesign, and parts of adobe creative suites.
i dont really have a budget, i cant spend like 3000 but i think anywhere below 2000 would be fine if there is a good reason for the cost
i am comfortable with the windows operating systems, but i am open to macs. if i were to get a mac, i would most likely also run windows 7 on it
any imput as to what my options are
