Not familiar with vray and rhino. For all of them, you will benefit from a good screen. So for 15 inches, can you use a Macbook Pro ? It will run windows no problem. It is "architecturally" well designed and the screen is very nice on those. If not that, then some ASUS laptops have a nice screen, though they are not nearly as nice in design and execution. You can also consider some Lenovo ThinkPads. The T series for example may be your cup of tea if you want that style of computer. They are as expensive as the Macbook Pros though. m 0 l verbalizer July 25, 2012 3:15:59 PM it would be optimal for an Intel notebook with dedicated GPU abilities. depending on budget you have tons of options. nVidia graphics are better for the apps in question especially Maya and adobe.. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
