A guide to choosing the best computers for architecture. Whether you’re a student, pro, or in a related discipline, this video will walk you through my methodology and selection criteria. I…


  1. hey,according to this video, sould we understand that; i while using revit, PS AutoCAD and lumion maybe at the same time , is it better to use MAC ?? Or use MAC with windows or PC with windows??? thanks so much

  2. Starting of my architecture journey as a student this week and having absolutely zero experience with computers cause I was more of a nut for cars haha I found this extremely useful! It kinda reinforces what research I had done but also put it into an easier way of understanding which was amazing! Cheers

  3. I suggest using a razer laptop, the razer blade or the stealth are all great for architecture programs. With the razer laptop your getting the sleek look of a mac and the high performance of a PC. If your looking for a windows laptop I highly recommend the razer line up.

  4. Hey,
    I am planning to buy a new laptop for work on go although i have a customize powerful desktop. i am very much confused between 2 choices as:
    1. macbook pro 13" 2.9 Ghz, 8GB, 512GB and
    2. MI notebook pro 15" 2.6 Ghz(intel coffeeLake), 16GB, 256GB

    Price difference is almost double in case of macbook pro. but i am confused for performance, reliability, portability, battery life and comfort.

    To make things easier i am mentioning the software which i need most on go
    1. Autocad 2D/3D
    2. Sketchup With Vray 3.4 Rendering.
    3. Photoshop CS6 ( this is for most of the time)
    4. and if Lumion supports (i know its not for OSX, but is it recommended to use parallel?)

    Suggest me choosing between two.

  5. Im not an architect, but a big computer nut, and was very pleasantly surprised that you didn't just cop out and say "le mac is best" but actually went into the specifics, and kept it open to other possibilities.
