A guide to choosing the best computers for architecture. Whether you’re a student, pro, or in a related discipline, this video will walk you through my methodology and selection criteria. I discuss in detail:
– Laptops vs. Desktop Systems
– Mac vs. Windows
– Software (commonly used and requirements)
– Hardware: CPU, Graphics Cards, Monitors
Along with this, you’ll see why I chose the system I did and what it means to my architecture practice. A truly behind-the-scenes look at my architecture…

  32. Build an itx pc with a case and volume less than 10L like a ML08-H, please don’t buy apple or any high end laptop… not only are you paying more for the same performance as a similar pc but you’re lucky if a laptop lasts even half as long as a pc. If you’re worried about not having a super thin computer to wow your friends because you’ve got an ego to stroke, a pc can be reduced to nothing more than a keyboard and portable monitor. But please please please, coming from someone who went down the laptop path especially apple anything, it is not worth it if you are even modestly serious about what you are doing.
