I use VW 2017 and need to purchase a new PC laptop. In January I purchased a new MSI WS60, which I thought would work great for Vectorworks. It was AWFUL. I hook it up to an external 1920x1080 USB 3.0 monitor (Asus MB168B+) and I had to lower the resolution of the laptop monitor to adjust, which I have no problem with. The problem is the text scaling was always off (regardless of the DPI & cleartext settings) and the windows in VectorWorks NEVER maintained their correct location if I closed and opened the app, or restarted or anything. I also had tons of the "ghosting" lines around the windows when I moved them. On my desktop, I have no problems. Using a different monitor isn't really an option because all of my travel kits (I'm always on the road) already have this monitor.
So I am asking for recommendations on a model or brand of laptop that will work better. I bought the MSI because it was marketed as a CAD laptop, but it was terrible. Budget isn't really an issue for me, I use this laptop every day on the road for my job. I don't really do any serious rendering, just wireframe documents exported to PDF. I would like the laptop to be same size as the MSI WS60 so it fits in all my bags....the size of that was 15.3 x 10.5 x 0.8 inches.
Any advice is appreciated. Thank You.
