Laptop for Architecture Student to Run Autocad, Revit, Etc


Hi,
Which laptop is suitable for an architecture student to run softwares like Autocad, Revit, 3ds max, Photshop and all?
Also, Can anyone explain the difference between ssd and normal hdd?
Which one to have in laptop-ssd or hdd?
No constraints on budget as such.
But do mention the laptops according to budget.
Ps- Safe budget would be somewhat in the range of 60-70k, but yes i would like to have options.

Buying a laptop for your studies and future career can be a difficult part. The main thing to consider is the system requirements of the software that you will be using. The software can range from cad packages, photoshop and image editing, rendering tools. Mac or Windows, power or portability: Eric Reinholdt of 30X40 Design Workshop breaks down the steps to choosing a computer for architecture.For more Google it and get more updates.

ASUS FX502VM-AS73 15.6-inch laptop

SSD = Solid State Drive, meaning it's using flash memory for it's storage.
HDD = Hard Disk Drive, meaning it's using magnetic spinning disks for it's storage.

Think of a SSD as a large capacity USB thumb drive or a large capacity memory card (used in mobiles).
Think of HDD as a large capacity floppy disk.

SSD are inherently faster than HDD since flash memory is directly addressable by the CPU, like RAM.
HDDs have some inherent delay since the CPU has to wait for the disk to spin and bring the appropriate section of disk under a magnetic reading needle.

The disadvantage of SSD is that flash memory is more expensive, and it has a limited number of times that the memory can be erased for storing new data. This limit usually is in terms of many years, so by the time you reach the limit it's practically time to replace the laptop anyway.

HDD disks are cheaper to make, and they can last longer than SSD, if the mechanical parts don't give up.

For a laptop, unless you intend to store a lot of movies where you need a larger capacity, it would be preferable to have a SDD as they are not only faster, but would also reduce power consumption as they don't have any mechanical parts.

1) ASUS/MSI are the brands to consider...

2) SSD : Solid State Drive which don't have any moving parts inside them as it's flash based & extremely fast than conventional HDDs...Windows will boot within max 10 seconds from booting if a good SSD is being used as a Boot drive...

There are 3 types of SSDs as I mentioned below...

i) Sata Based SSD ii) M.2 Sata SSD iii) PCIE Gen3 X4 SSDs which provide unreal data transfer speeds like 2000/3000+ Mbps but also expensive...

Samsung SSDs are best & are backed by a 5 Years Warranty...Crucial is also a very good alternative...

HDD : 1) Normal HDDs with rotating platters inside...Most laptops will come with a 5400 RPM HDD inside which is very slow...7200 RPM HDDs are faster...

3) SSHD (Solid State Hybrid Drive) : Conventional HDDs with a little amount of flash storage added which makes them better choice than conventional HDDs...Seagate has SSHDs for laptops...

Go for either HP ZBook G2 15.6 inch Mobile Business Workstation or Dell Inspiron Laptop. I had a good experience with them both.
