  • Gaming Laptop for TGC19

    Hey Guys,

    Quick Note: I am not an idiot when it comes to these things, however I am not well versed in this world either. I understand the generalities, just hoping someone with a bit more knowledge might be able to comment on the components as packaged.

    So my current setup decided to take a death nap, so I am looking to upgrade. A little information about my setup. It is currently in my garage, and since I use my garage like a shop at times (Cutting Wood, Welding, general garage stuff) I was hoping to purchase a laptop so I can pack it up when I am not using it, as a desktop is liable get fairly grimey considering the use case. My setup is paired to a short throw projector, and I am not looking to project in higher than 1080. This computer will 95% be used for golf simulation, possibly some modeling software for 3d printing. Here are a couple I am eyeing I would like to know your thoughts:

    Best for the money?

    Those graphics cards are going to struggle to show TGC the way you likely will want it. I would look for GTX1060 minimum or better yet 1070.
