Grateful for any advice for Laptop purchase.
I use Zbrush/3DCoat/Blender/Keyshot/Photoshop primarily for creating still images (model-texture-render-post-done). Most of my time is in Zbrush with most rendering in Keyshot, but like using Cycles from time to time as well as simulations and generators in Blender for fluid, cloth, and particles. Interested in MD for cloth sims, but not critically important.
I am working in a budget as close to 1500 USD as possible, so my target specs include:
Thin and Light with professional look are High Priority; suitable for business meetings and portable(something that looks more like a laptop than a spaceship and is easy to carry around)
1060GTX Max Q or original with 6GB
At least 256 SSD with 1TB or more SSD or HDD for storage; will settle for one 512 or more SSD
16 GB Ram or more and at least upgradable to 32
1080P, IPS preferred
easily upgradeable memory ad storage
Which is better option: Gigabyte Aero 15, Razer Blade 15, or other?
I think the Zephyrus is out of my price range for these specs
I decided against the MSI P65 due to having to remove motherboard for upgrades
Do you think prices will drop more than several hundred in the next few weeks?
Best place to purchase?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks in advance
