Thank you in advance for reading and this excellent resource!
I’m looking to start my own freelance business thanks to “timely” COVID “restructuring”. In the past, I’ve graciously had use of workstation class laptops from work and I’m looking to recreate that functionality in a desktop.
My budget is $1000-$1500.
I am capable (hopefully) of doing the build myself if cheaper.
Needs: Being able to smoothly run AutoCAD and small Revit (BIM) projects as well as do moderate Photoshop and Illustrator work.
Nice to haves: Being able to do at least moderate renderings and some moderate video editing work. Additionally larger 3D modeling and design/photoshopping projects.
Thank you again for any input. I’ve spent a day looking through various builds and pre-built machines with little clarity gained. With the vision/options somewhat fogged by “deals” going on today and my somewhat rusty computer knowledge, I keep getting returned to square.
Any and all advice appreciated!!
