Laptop build

Recommended Posts

Hey

I am going to order a laptop for my new job, and would like some pc-builder feedback.

Basically I am trying to get a balance between raw power, and not having extremely overpriced components. (For instance a 3gHz 4th gen i-7 is close to 1000$ more expensive than a 4th.gen 2.7gHz i-7 )

I will need loads of RAM and CPU power for simulations and a decent videocard for computational fluid mechanics postprocessing.

Basically it seems like I am landing at something like this:

4th gen Intel-core i-7 2.7gHz

NVIDIA® Quadro® K2100M w/2GB GDDR5 (About the same as consumer GT-750M)

16 or 32Gb DDR3 ram depending on budget

128 or 256Gb SSD depending on budget

Then I am contemplating "sacrificing" the CD/DVD rom for a 1Tb disk with 32Gb flash memory and using a external dvd rom when needed.

Good idea?

Any ideas/suggestions?

I am unaware of the price range because the website only says call about them, but perhaps Doghouse new professional lineup of computers? They make fantastic pc's. www.doghousesystems.com
