I've recently invested in some new equipment for our business (we do BIM surveys for the construction industry) and as part of our service we create 3D models using point cloud data.
(stay with me!)
The software we need to run is click here but I want to ensure we're able to use a laptop thats a) powerful enough to crunch data and b) has a decent amount of battery life to take with us out on surveys. It can be a bit of a pain having to sit in the van so we can use our power inverter when the battery dies.
I've looked at Dell machines but in all honesty - could do with some advice on the difference in processors (admittedly haven't kept upto date with processors since the Pentium range).
Any advice would be great and if anyone can educate me on the best processor to look for, this would also limit my search!
