Hi,

 

 

 

First time poster, long time reader.

 

I'm looking for some advice on a new mobile Windows laptop. A quick run down of what it's required for, basic 3D CAD, Photoshop, Illustrator and various other multitasking programs. I currently have been running a upgraded Zenbook for the last 4 years and it's been great. But sadly I think it's on it's last legs.

 

This is what I was looking at https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/NBKACN92306R/Acer-NZ-Remanufactured-NHQ23SA006-AcerLocal-1yr-wa 

 

I just wanted to make sure it would do the job or ask if anyone else would have some other recommendations for around the same price range $2k?

 

 

 

Cheers

Item:

 

Can you stretch the budget a bit and go for a Dell XPS 15"?

Highly recommend the 2018 or 2019 XPS 15. THe 2018 one is also ok, the main noticable difference being the position of the webcam.
