Hay Community,

 

Looking for a good laptop for RnD Houdini work. Thin and good performance does anyone have experience with Razer Blade or similar models?

i had bad experience with dell XPS laptop, that's why i switched to mac book. best part is the apple service, they will replace your mac book even if it is 5years old.

a friend of mine try get replacements for surface because it burn the CPU, they was laughing at him in Microsoft store. but i know a guy, which he is using his Dell Precision Mobile Workstation for years.

What issues did you have with the xps? I've got an xps13 and it does feel a little temperamental......

XPS graphics died.... after dell service guy came and replaced the motherboard, it got worse it run's hot after 20 minutes and shut it self down -->just throw it out and switched to apple. never issues or blurscreen --> never lookded back... i heard lot time people burn's CPU/GPU if it let it runs all day long under full stress. thats i never buy machine with highestg GHz. good cooled or Xeon's . thats why willl pay extra money and save me time for fixing /replacing stuff all the time.

Andrei Lebrov made a cool review on the razer blade. To me, it seems like it's the best laptop at the moment for cgi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-8HTLLK910&t=44s

Otherwise, this one seems cool if you upgrade the ram to 32 Go https://www.amazon.fr/MSI-8RF-446-Creator-Portable-RAM16384/dp/B07N74CM9H

Or this one, a friend of me, using Houdini a lot, told me it was a good deal https://www.amazon.fr/Gigabyte-Aero-15-W9-7FR0250P-Ordinateur-Portable/dp/B07RWC82FX/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_fr_FR=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&keywords=gigabyte&qid=1564684344&rnid=340859031&s=computers&sr=1-1
