[Problem] Laptop/ Mobile Workstation Choice
Hi CivilEA Members!

I'm writing this post because I'm currently facing a problem with choosing a new Laptop/Mobile Workstation. I've been using my current laptop since 2011, which is a Dell Inspiron N5110 (CPU Intel Core i7-2670QM, 8GB RAM, 256gb SSD and GPU Nvidia Geforce GT525m). I use it for running ETABS v15, SAFE, SAP2000, AutoCAD 2D, TEKLA Structures (currently learning) and sometimes to open and check REVIT Models.

The point is that I don't really know whether choose a gaming laptop with a Nvidia Geforce GTX 960/970 M or a Mobile Workstation with a Nvidia Quadro M1000M  (maybe an ATI FirePro w5170), since there's not much information about the performance of previously mentioned workstation GPU. To make things worse, I'm not able to spend more than 900-1100 dollars right now.

The question is, which one of these GPU-CPU combinations would you recommend me for my next laptop upgrade?

Nvidia Geforce GTX 960/965/970M - i7-4720HQ
Nvidia Geforce GTX 960/965/970M - i7-5700HQ
Nvidia Geforce GTX 960/965/970M - i7-6700HQ
Nvidia Quadro M1000M - i7-6820HQ
Nvidia Quadro k2100M - i7-4720HQ
ATI FirePro W5170M - i7-6820HQ

I also accept a Laptop suggestion.
Thanks in advance!
