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 


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?

I have a Yoga910, I bought a couple of years ago but this is the latest.


Amazing machines, I have a 4k screen, 500gig ssd, 16 gig ram. Its small, light, and I run 2 monitors off it. I use it for programming.

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.
