  1. Suggestions for laptop for Home Designer 2021. Starting from scratch. Please let me know if yours is working great for you. I plan to use an extra monitor as well. Thanks!

    Best computer to buy

    I am new to Home Designer. I purchased the Home Designer Arch 2021 program because I do some residential space plan and design for friends and family. I was previously hand drawing main plans, using Room Sketcher for 3D and walk thru program and Lowes cabinet designer program for more detail cabinet plans. The purchase of CA was to hopefully simplify to one program and save time although I know there will be some learning curve. I am searching for a new computer and wondering if there are suggestions. I would like to have a second monitor as well and had thought about a gaming laptop that meets all the requirements on CA website and then some. Having the laptop gives me flexibility to take work with me when I am traveling. The laptop I found is an MSI and has two hardrives. (One TB of HDD and 512 SDD) Also 6 GB video card, 17.3 screen, 16 GB ram. I am new to drawing digitally other that what I mentioned. Excited to delve into HD and want to be sure I have the right tools. Also wondering if I should have gotten the Pro version to start out. Any pros or cons to both for a new user? Thanks!
