How to Choose a Computer for Architecture

A guide to choosing the best computers for architecture. Whether you’re a student, pro, or in a related discipline, this video will walk you through my methodology and selection criteria. I discuss in detail:
– Laptops vs. Desktop Systems
– Mac vs. Windows
– Software (commonly used and requirements)
– Hardware: CPU, Graphics Cards, Monitors
Along with this, you’ll see why I chose the system I did and what it means to my architecture practice. A truly behind-the-scenes look at my architecture practice.
