  • I am helping to convert a 25+ person high-end architecture firm from using Max (w/ SketchUp and Vectorworks (2D-only) to Revit on PCs. So far, I've tested my personal Dell PC desktop, and an Asus laptop with Enscape and Revit. Both work pretty well, but I'm hoping to do more research and find the best laptop possible for using Enscape in Revit.

    Our budget is anywhere from $2k-$3k+, so no afraid to spend a bit to get great performance. That said, we have some $4k+ Alienware laptop for use with Enscape+SketchUp, and there is little to no difference compared to the $2,300 Asus when using Enscape. I've also been looking at BIM Box, but they are pretty expensive, and maybe overkill.

    I am having trouble finding good/ methodical/ benchmarked info on the best laptops for Revit+Enscape, so I figured I'd post here to see if anyone has specific laptop models they have tested/ are using? I know the general specs we're looking for, but am trying to get help with specific laptop recommendations that are proven. We do mostly high-end residential, some commercial. I cannot imagine our REvit models ever getting over 900 MB or so, likely averaging around 500 MB.

    Thanks in advance!

  • I like Razer.

    Better: Intel i9 with 30780RTX

    Best: Intel i9 with 3080Ti RTX

    Enscape is very GPU intensive. I use to follow user posted GPU benchmarks. You can search "laptop" to filter any portable GPUs.
