hi guys

I'm looking for some advice here for purchasing a laptop. I have a friend who is a fashion designer and will need a laptop which she can use to work with programs like Illustrator and Photoshop and some 3D modelling.

Her budget will probably be set to around £1,400-1600. It shouldn't weigh more than 2.5kg and that's probably the heaviest.

I was looking at the following:

Lenovo ThinkPad P53s Core i7 8565U 8GB 256GB SSD 15.6 Inch NVIDIA Quadro P520
13.3-inch MacBook Pro 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 with Retina display

I'm even looking at Dell laptops too.

The thing is, she won't be using any of this for gaming. So I also don't want to get her something with too much overkill.

I just wanted some thoughts about any recommendations you guys might have regarding the above information?

Thanks for helping
Yash
