My father is looking for a new laptop, so he has asked me for some help but my knowledge on this matter is limited.

He's looking for a very powerful laptop and there's a price limitation at 25000 Danish kroner. He's going to be using it for his work in China where he runs his own architecture-business(primarily for drawing in autocad).

So he's basically asking for the best laptop on the market. He won't be getting a stationary as he needs to be able to carry it with him on business trips. There are no preferences when it comes to brands.

Any advice? :D I'm guessing quadcore and gtx 280 or something would be best?

I posted this message the last time. Now i have found what seems to be a good enough laptop with some solid hardware and in my mind great specs but since my knowledge on this matter is limited.

I would like to hear some of your opinions .. Everything you do is appreciated

that is a gaming system. he does not need two gaming video cards. they will not help him in any way and they will kill his battery. he just needs a a quad core processor. find a laptop with a quad and integrated video and he'll be fine.

Look at the Dell Precision line - those have Nvidia Quadro graphics cards which are actually designed for CAD work.

For example:

Dell Precision M6400
Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9300 2.53Ghz (regular quad-core doesn't seem to be available)
4 GB DDR-3 RAM
512MB Nvidia Quadro FX2700M
320 GB Hard drive
(Danish) Windows Vista Business SP-1 (64-bit)

20,583 kroner

You can customize the amount of RAM, video card and OS, additional battery, etc. but you can still stay well under 25,000 kroner with rebates.

the precisions are far better. they're made for exactly this kind of work.
