If you are a person for whom budget is not the main concern while selecting for yourself the best laptop for Blender, this is definitely the right choice for you to be made! Apple has never failed to impress its customers with the thoughts they invest to develop the interior as well as the exterior for their models.

And that’s what takes them to the topmost rank particularly when talking about ratings from the elite class. Let’s see what’s so impressing in here!

PERFORMANCE:

This amazing notebook is equipped with a super fast 8th generation Intel Core i9 processor. Never heard about it before? Core i9 was very new to me as well while I was researching about this version by Apple, but let me tell you this fact over here.
Many of the professional business laptops that are particularly designed for the purpose to run heavy applications smoothly fail to fulfill the needs of many users. Apple MacBook Pro is doing the job exceptionally outstandingly with successfully meeting its claims regarding zero lag and faster load timings.
Next up, the storage. With the storage as high as 1TB, you can run Blender, without any worries for future updates. You can also store tons of files and assemblies all at one place hence ultimately increasing the workflow for you. The RAM you would get in here is 16GB, high enough to let you accomplish all your tasks with ease and comfort.

DISPLAY AND PORTABILITY:

Apple as usually has equipped all of its models with the best of displays it possibly could. This version has a 15-inch Retina LED-backlit Display with IPS technology; providing bright saturated contrasts with vivid detailing.
You won’t be annoyed by the zoom resolution issues, because even the highest of magnification would provide you with the finest of details. The screen feels snappier and smoother than the previous 13-inch model released by Apple.
Available in two colors currently; Silver and White gray. Go to your favorite one! Portable enough with a weight of only 4 lbs but can be carried securely anywhere without the worries of a draining battery.
Yes, you heard it right. About 10 hours of continuous heavy use is what Apple is offering you along with uncompromising mobility from the system. A handsome package indeed!

Despite exhibiting subpar times in our battery life benchmarks, this svelte powerhouse of a notebook is one for the books when it comes to both movability and style.

The Asus ROG Zephyrus GX501, a 4.9 lb. / 2.2kg 15″ laptop with the quad-core i7-7700HQ CPU and NVIDIA GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5 Max-Q dedicated graphics. This is one of the first NVIDIA Max-Q notebooks to hit the market, and it promises less heat and noise than the standard GPU counterpart. This allows for thinner designs and lower weight as well— going after the 15” MacBook Pro, MSI GS Stealth Pro and Razer Blade market.

The 18mm thick laptop is clad in classy black aluminum, minus the gamer bling. Its bottom panel drops down when you open it to increase cooling. The laptop has a 120Hz full HD matte IPS display, RGB color-programmable keyboard in an unusual frontmost location, right side MS Precision trackpad that doubles as a number pad at the touch of a button and Intel 8265AC WiFi.

PERFORMANCE

MSI has equipped this elegantly designed model with the New powerful Intel Core i7-8750H 2.2 – 4.1GHz which is experienced to have shorter load timings and faster boot-ups than ever. You won’t be annoyed with wait/no respond warning from the system; I guarantee.

Along with this, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX1060 Graphics card particularly for editors to add more to the thrill of the high-end editing. Get the best of graphics while recording or streaming and entertain your fans with an attractive display.

Although the MSI models have been priced slightly higher than the usual laptops you would find with these specifications, I think it exceeds all the system requirements that are needed for the Elgato Gaming Cards.

THE DISPLAY IS BRILLIANT

Though having a TN Panel that most users complain of but I have personally found this TN panel to be the most compatible with PlayStation and Xbox. So even that’s not a problem fellows!

Also has been coupled with 512GB of storage heavy enough to let you store tons of videos and animations files all onto one system.

RAM AND THE PORTING CAPACITY

A 32GB of RAM is going to take you to another level of thrill and excitement; because this is the highest hard disk drive any system can offer you with.

Talking about the Thunderbolt 3 port which is blazingly fast herein this device. Allowing greater connection possibilities whether it’s with an Elgato Game Capture HD or with some other monitor for offline multiplayer gaming.

PROS
  • Attractive, subtle design
  • Gorgeous, fast display
  • Excellent performance
  • Effective thermal management
CONS
  • Underside gets burning hot
  • Forthcoming biometric login
  • Poor native audio
