The down side is battery life, there's nothing better than a mbp for battery life. http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=viewtopic.php&t=514661
My only regret is not getting the 17inch model and possibly 4k, as i'm so used to the mbp retina display ratio._________________AC20 + ARTLANTIS 5 + METABOX Px750dm (corei7 6700K 4.0Ghz, What are you guys using? What brand of laptop should I get? This seems crazy long to me, but maybe this is the case on laptops or when using normal hard drives.
But i think the metabox has the best of both worlds. You could try disabling the gamestream service and see if that makes any difference?_________________LenovoThinkpad Yoga - Windows 10 Pro, Intel i7 4500U, 8Gb DDR3 RAM Back to top laszlonagySite AdminJoined: ALSO a 3D connection- wireless space mouse - THESE ARE FREAKING AMAZING. it's the bomb.

Shame I can't buy Metabox laptops in the UK or I'd definitely consider one. Don't think I'd be able to afford one though to be honest, considering this is a secondary (travelling) PC for me._________________Paul Griggs BSc, MCIAT, ICIOB Chartered Architectural Technologist AC18, i5 3570K There is no delay whatsoever when using my desktop PC. Any feedback or even advice on optimising my graphics card or Archicad would be much appreciated.

If anyone can tell me whether ArchiCAD performs better on the Quadro over the Geforce then that would also be great!_________________Paul Griggs BSc, MCIAT, ICIOB Chartered Architectural Technologist AC18, i5 3570K I would think that maybe the issues with performance were related to a far bigger problem than initially thought.

I didn't even think that was possible to have a desktop CPU in a laptop! But the metabox is just so customizable, espically the drives, dual hdd or ssd or pcie or a combo of both. with my mbp 3d modeling is atrocious, slow and painful, and i'm soon to upgrade to something new. The distortion comes in the form of lines across the moving 3d model. 3) Although this seems to vary slightly, just opening a 'new' drawing file from scratch can take up
Battery life is not great, they're also heavy, but still portable and powerful. Seems to be a BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO issue which is going to require either a complete reinstall of the operating system, or a new laptop!

Thing is, it still features an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960m 2GB GDDR5 card instead of the Nvidia Quadro M1000M w/2GB GDDR5 which I can get on a slightly more expensive workstation All other tools seem fine. 2) When using the orbit tool in the 3d window, there appears to be some graphics distortion coming and going randomly. However, I have noticed the following issues when I use Archicad: 1) There is a slight millisecond delay when using the wall tool and the beam tool in the 2d window. You can check the spec stated on my earlier post for the i5 Dell that I am about to return and use it as a benchmark.
Unfortunately, due to it dying on me, I have no real way of telling if the performance issues were down to a hardware fault as opposed to too low a specification. They feature a full DESKTOP CPU.
