So I have recently started my own business in construction site engineering and surveying.

I work a lot with AutoCAD, and want to get into 3D modelling with the likes of AutoCAD Revit and Civil 3D.

I have always been an apple guy and wanted to pick up an M1 MacBook Pro but running Revit and civil 3D on it would have to be done through bootcamp and I'm not sure if I want that hassle. Also other software I will be using to process 3D scans are native to windows so I have decided to get a windows laptop.

It needs to be a laptop at the moment, as I am constantly travelling between different projects and I will be getting a desktop later down the line.

I was doing more research into 3D scanning and point cloud data and the suggestion is 16GB RAM with a dedicated GPU.

I was looking at the Dell XPS 15 (i7 10750H, 16GB RAM upgradable and Nvidia GTX 1650Ti 4GB) , in the UK for around £2000GBP

But then I came across the razer blade 15 base model with the same processor, same RAM upgradable and a GTX 3070 8GB for around £1900 GBP.

To me It should be a no brainier, but maybe I'm missing something? The razer has the better GPU

My question is, does anyone have any experience with the Razer Blade 15?

Or are there any other suggestions for a workstation laptop for around £2000 GBP

I know you can get other dedicated gaming laptops but I don't really want something that's going to look like an obnoxious gaming laptop either.

Hope I make sense lol and thanks for the time!
