Smile a Laptop for 3ds for only 1000€ ?!

I had a dream..
I need to buy a 17"3 Laptop but dont have a big budget,
do you think it would be possible to find one for that budget?

untill now I didnt find, I found these:
- Toshiba X500 (18”)
- Dell Precision M6600 Core i7
- Lenovo W530 -> 1000 M
- Lenovo Thinkpad w520 a, quadro
- HP EliteBook 8530w

They all have quadro + i7 what I think is good from what I read

one more question :-) I was reading about the SSDs on internet and I saw it is could for the paging (reducing render time)...didnt understood everything though ;-)

I use lots of proxies, do the SSDs help to shorten the render time in that case?

PS: I found few gamers Latptops for little less than 1000€, I search more, could be good

I think I found a Notebook now (see underneath the one for 1100€, with the GeForce):

Something still I have in the back of the head: when I went to the shops in the city, they told me that for 3ds max I would need a GPU that is a Quadro or a Firepro but on the internet there is this website http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile...List.844.0.html where the values of the Quadro 3000 is way lower than the Quadro..

Do you also think that this CSL is better than the Elitebook?

The SSD will do nothing for render times. render speed is going to be 99% cpu, 1% ram

Even if youre loading in giant fluid sims, its still pretty much at the bottom of the list in render time affecting components.
