    But are they as good quality as Thinkpads, i was just looking on google and they look very plasticly and bad quality. Sort of like what Clevo turned into

    Like I said a fast quad core and an appropriate graphics card might be more suited for a modelling PC. AFAIK,modelling tends to be more lightly threaded and a FireGL or Quadro card is more suitable than a consumer card.

    Regarding the build quality,the model I am referring to is the Rock Xtreme 795 which is based on the Clevo X7200 chassis.

    Here are some reviews of laptops based on the same chassis:

    However,it does weigh quite a bit.
