Hi guys,
Need some suggestions for a laptop.

The requirement is that designing applications like Autocad, 3ds max, sketch up should run decently on it
Budget is under 60K

Based on some opinions from other people, have shortlisted some of the specs

1)i5 6th generation
2) RAM 8 GB (Is it enough??)

3)Important Graphic card..not able to decide 2 GB or 4 GB
And regarding graphic card brand, was looking at Dell inspiron 5559 series and it comes with “AMD Radeon™ R5 M335 DDR3” graphic card. The only 2 variants in Dell i5 6th gen come with this card
Is it a good card? Many have told me to avoid AMD and go with Nvidia. So how do i stay with Dell and avoid AMD

Help would be appreciated

i5 4th,5th,6th generation all are the same with minor differences
And i think 8GB memory is more than enough

And your budget is 60k so get a laptop from US with Global warranty you can get even DDR4/5Graphic card with Intel quadcore processor, there are lots of options there and prices are almost 30-50% less compared to Indian prices

Why not go for mac.. Its good gor editing and stuffs.. Paytm mac book offers goimg around for 64k…

Also you can check mac mini which gives bang for bucks…

If you are not a fan of apple.. Then there are few models of lenovo which might be suitable but bit out of your budget.. 70k++

I would suggest a desktop for such kind of editing ypu can get server grades conigurations for 60k customize with dedicated graphics card and stuff racks of ram

AMD isn’t bad but nvedia nudges it on performance.. 2gb is good foe photo editing and modelling/cad stuffs… 4gb is needed if extensive video editing and mutitasking is involved..

Why do you say that, unless CUDA is a necessity AMD beats anything Nvidia especially in OpenCL performance. Also 2GB is not enough for photo/video editing, that was like 4 years back. A GPU will load a high resolution photo in it’s VRAM, as you add more layers of editing more VRAM is needed & you simply cannot add that, unlike system RAM. Same goes for video editing where more VRAM is always better, so depending on the resolution of photos & video (HD/4K/8K/16K) one should get a bare minimum of 4GB VRAM laden GPU, if it’s something uber demanding then you’ll have to get pro cards with 16~32GB VRAM.

Just to add, video/photo editing even as a casual user is best done on a desktop. If you’re using a laptop then there’s an upper limit to anything you can do on it, mainly because the CPU & GPU will heatup & that’ll impact your (editing) session’s speed majorly.

For college work you do not need extra graphics card at all as the Intel 560 in 6th generation is enough powerful . Also extra graphics card means more power consumption.
Go with Dell 5559 i5 6200u one from Dell store. Extra 2 years warrant y available for free.

There is no HD graphics 560 https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_rolleyes.gif

What you’re probably referring to is the Iris Pro & that comes alongwith an i7, true quad core, with costs in the range of 1Lac or more for the laptop.

Yes…that one I’m considering
But AMD graphic card will do right?
As there is no alternative model in dell with nvidia card

Yeah I get that but I doubt any college teaches all the stuff, software he’s mentioned, at the undergrad level. He’s better off with a desktop because if he’s looking to do video/photo editing for long term the laptop will be obsolete anyway, cause pro/developers mostly have to use high end CPU+GPU which simply is impossible in a laptop. The laptop is basically only for educational purposes or some light work, it can barely run those software at full tilt without throttling.
