Laptop Spec - £500~

Hi Folks,

 

Is it possible to buy or build a laptop for around £500-600 that will be capable of running Solidworks 2017 onwards. (17" Screen)
The laptop won't be subject to heavy huge assemblies or need to do any visualize work. The most taxing thing will probably be some reasonably light Simulation work. My work is forestry based design, so trailers, cranes, grabs etc.

 

Just looking for some advice on what to focus on? Should I go for an i7 Processor & a good Graphics card as recommended and "settle" for other components or should I go for an i5 say but add a solid state harddrive etc.
Best combo please!

 

Thanks,

 

Martin
