For me portability is important in the way that as long as it can be carried and not use like 20 cables can liao

Mostly using insai a room months at a time
Aftershock laptops ah, never really checked them out before, guess i go see see look look their website ba

Thanks mate!

3d modelling is heavy on CPU+ ram, GPU pretty much not touched.

So focus im guessing is on CPU+ram+portability(since u say u use surface pro). Also guessing you'd prefer touchscreen. So dont bother buying gaming laptop since you dont game heavy. Waste money. Gaming laptops also damn bloody heavy unless you gon splash ALOT of cash on the thin-and-light gaming laptops.

Can check out the Dell XPS 2 in 1. Or any other ultra book.

Keep in mind if u want best performance need min. 16gb ram, best case 32 gb ram for 3D modelling. H-class CPU obv best la, but the 8th gen U processors in ultrabooks nubbad also.

Hi folks thanks again for the advice, I think after weeks of researching this ThinkPad X1 Extreme should be what I want sioh, very fierce battle between the razer blade and dell's xps 15. Would have kioed xps 15 if not for the lack of parts customization which affects the price by a lot. Lenova can let me squeeze in 32GB ram by choosing windows home instead of pro and also have a slightly weaker cam and smaller ssd hard drive, 512 gb down to 256. Cost around $2610. Dell die die want me hoot 2,899 which still have 16GB ram. Razer blade very tempting but seems like got a lot of complaint that it die very faster, like a year or so, so not gonna tempt fate I guess. Think I gonna stew over it a few more days since this is considered to be a big purchase for me.

You can also consider Aftershock Apex-15. Base config starts at $1785, which has an i7-8750H, 8GB RAM, GTX 1050Ti and 512GB M.2 SSD. Weight is 1.95kg with battery.

If you need more RAM, can buy and add your own or get from Aftershock.
