    Best computer $2200 or less, on the market July 2nd 2020

    I am shopping for a computer this weekend and need help. Can anyone give me your top three picks off the shelf, desktop and laptop, $2200 or less?

    Running Revit, Rhino and AutoCAD -no 3D Max.
    Thank you!

    I personally would email Anthony at RemisCS.com, and see if its possible to configure one of his Anvils at that cost. If not, its worth spending a little bit extra.

    I wouldnt pick something up from a "big house" Computer name, for that price. Of course they will all run "okayish" but youll get more bang for the buck, through Remis.

    Or just buy the components and assemble it yourself. should get you a decent rig for that price specially if you go for the intell i9 9900K and corresponding motherboard and not the latest and greatest.

    Sure. But also remember that time you spend working on it, isnt free. If you want to do it as a hobbyist thing, sure.

    I dont want to burn up multiple hours putting together and configuring stuff that i have to read about and learn, to do it. Id rather hire a professional, and know its done right.

    If you want to build it yourself you can easely put together a system with a i9 10900k, 32GB of ram and a mid range graphics card. Or of course a company can put the computer that you configure together. Al long as you dont overspend on your graphics card this should fit in your budget. Otherwise get the 10700k.
    But that depends on if there are any decent computer builders in your area.

    If you want to get a prebuild ''workstation'' you can also do that for around 2k but youll get a lot less performance.

    For a laptop you are probably going to get the most bang for the buck with a gaming laptop. But when buying a laptop, please check a review on youtube or whereever which also looks into the thermal performance. You can have a very nice i7 9850H laptop or something in that range, but if it keeps thermal throttling its still going to be slow. So be sure to look for good airflow, some nice big bottom and side vents.
