Hi everyone! I am a student who is currently working on my senior undergrad project using ArcGIS Pro, and I need a laptop that can run Pro as well as illustrator and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to start looking. I dont need anything fancy, just something that can handle running analyses on my data.

Performance in ArcGIS on a computer is strongly dependent on the RAM, GPU, and the processor.

I would recommend a gaming laptop. Not the low end budget gaming laptops. 

You will need a 64 bit system.

For each of these it is the recommended.  And more is better

4 Cores 


Dedicate GPU, not shared, not integrated.  4 GB of Video Memory.
