I'll elaborate on that. Revit is good for large commercial, large institutional, & large residential (multi-unit) projects. It's actually fine for medium-sized projects too For the record
, I will say this, if
the OP is planning NOT
to do any 3D photo-realistic rendering, it is NOT
required to buy a laptop with a workstation card for 2D & 3D wire-frame drawing.. All gpu's (gaming & workstation
), performs basically almost the same (very minimal performance difference
) regarding 2D & 3D wire-frame drawings.
With that being said, I hope the OP who is buying this Lenovo workstation laptop is also interested in 3d rendering. If you're not going to be doing any 3d rendering
, it makes more sense for you to buy a gaming laptop so you can enjoy your usage for autocad / revit & gaming This does not change the fact that the Lenovo W520 or W530 are nice workstation laptops Edited by drBlahMan - 11/11/13 at 6:43am
