If it's in your budget I recommend the Razer blade with 1060 chipset. You can get one for around $2100, it's light, built like a MacBook, and is my favorite PC yet. It'll run anything you throw at it and them some.

While the new Razer blade is not a cheap laptop I have been thinking about one of these lately to replace my desktop. Razer also has an external CORE that you can buy for putting a better GPU in. While the 1060 would be awesome for games I was thinking you could put a CAD card in the Core for the best of both worlds.

Glad to hear that, I recently took the plunge and ordered one.

I have been tempted by Maingear's marketing videos for a laptop too, but not willing to pay the price they ask.

Agreed, my GF recently upgraded her 15" Macbook Pro to a Razer Blade for photography and video editing and she's been very happy with her purchase. It's a really well built machine and offers a lot of power in a small package. For a young company I'm impressed by their attention to detail. The triple serpent on the lid is kind of unfortunate. I think they may be surprised that a lot of creative professionals are interested in it and certainly not just gamers. An all black "sleeper" version would be really nice. Though I guess that's just a vinyl wrap away...

You can prefer Lenovo company, this brand gives affordable, user-friendly, fast response and more services. I am also using last 4 year.

The Dell XPS 13 is an excellent ultraportable laptop, the best 13-inch Windows model going for many. There’s also a mix of old and new connections, and a combo of a large battery and smart power management

I am using a MacBook with Quadro processor. I feel pretty good.

I am very hopeful, I looked at a coworkers yesterday and first glance was pretty good. Hopefully I'll have more thoughts very soon!

If we're going to revive this thread, how do you guys feel about the latest Surface Book? It may just bridge the gap for a lot of designers with its 15” screen, quad core and very decent graphics.
