I need to purchase a laptop within days since my T61p retired few days ago. I work in an interior design industry, therefore Autocad, Sketchup, 3d Max, Photoshop are MUST have items. I have a budget of $1500; 15 inch screen; i7 processor; a great graphic card which can do a great job. I hope it will last for 3 years or longer.
