Ivy Diaz (2 months ago)
Hello, I am not an Engineering major. I'm a Computer Science major, but I decided to try and ask here because you seem very genuine and eager to help the STEM community. So far I have learned the basics of C++ and have used Linux server and VS 2017. I'm not sure what other programs I will be using in my future courses though. I'm expecting to do lots of coding and when I transfer to a university, I will be taking a few engineering courses required for my Bachelor's in CS. I figured a laptop/tablet that works for an engineering student would be more than enough for me. My budget is 1K, maybe a little more than that if I find something that would really fit my situation. I want something that will hopefully last me a long time. I have a generic $500 HP laptop and it's already giving out after a year. The specs I would really like would be i7 processor, at least 16GB RAM, 256SSD. I am trying to look for a 2-in-1 because I really want to do digital notetaking so that I don't have to haul around paper and textbooks. Would those specs be reasonable for my situation?

Alex Nderitu (2 months ago)
IN A HURRY FOR BLACK FRIDAY! I wanted to know which laptop to get for a mechanical engineer who will be using a lot of solid works and other software for the program. I'm leaning towards the Dell XPS 13, what are your thoughts and would you recommend otherwise? I'm really open minded and would appreciate feedback, thanks.
Cari G (3 months ago)
You didn't go over the type of graphics card. I bought the Asus thinking it was great. If you game, sure. But if you are using this for mechanical engineering it sucks! For CAD software you need a Nvidia graphics card. Not an Intel graphics card. I had no idea about this when I bought my computer. Now I am stuck with this expensive computer that is almost impossible to do CAD on.
Mincie Adams (3 months ago)
I’m really late on this video. But I am planning on majoring in electrical engineering and want to look into getting a laptop that is not too costly. Do you have any in mind?
Oscar Van Hemel (4 months ago)
I would like to give a side note behance the videocards.. As a mechanical engineer and you are using solidworks CAD and an Invidia GeForce videocard it wont help... this because solidworks works with openGL cards and GeForce does not have that but a Quaddro card does. So I would recommend using a quaddro card and high storage for a better working solidworks.

Shamoon Akhtar (8 months ago)
Hi jake, What sort of specs would you recommend for an ultrabook to be able to handle most single parts and moderate sized assemblies consisting of around 20 parts in CAD? Because I'm after something that can not only handle that but looks sleek and cool too (think I'm asking for a lot LOL!) something similar to the hp spectre x360 but with higher specs possibly?
Rizwan Abdul rahiman (8 months ago)

Hi, I’m starting my mechanical engineering degree in October 2018. I’m looking at a MacBook 12” with i7 processor, 512gb SSD and 16 gb ram. Please can you advise if this is a good buy. I’ll put windows on it so it can dual boot.
Shradhye Shrestha (8 months ago)
I am seeking for a fast operating laptop. I work on cad, 3dsmax,Revit. But my laptop lags time to time. It takes hours for completing a task. The softwares doesn't respond time to time. If you could tell me a better option. Thank you
aguila (9 months ago)
Jesus Christ, fellow engineering students, GET A QUADRO (or amd firepro), those drivers are incredibly useful for cad and ESPECIALLY civil 3D and solidworks. And if you are a gamer forget those Gtxes, you’ll be fine with a Quadro.

Dale Crawford (10 months ago)
Jake Voorhees!!! I just watched your video. I am a Mechanical Engineering student, using solid works. I just went out and bought I laptop but I want to make sure I made the right choice. I bought it from best buy. here is the description: Asus - 2-in-1 15.6" 4K Ultra HD Touch-Screen Laptop Intel Core i7 16GB Memory NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M - 2TB HDD + 512GB SSD - Sandblasted matte black aluminum. If you could help in anyway that would be awesome. I really want this laptop to last me a long time, not be slow, be durable and just overall be an amazing laptop to solidworks and 3D work. I need help ASAP!! Thank you! Just need to know so I can return it and look at my options.

You probably not still answering on this video, but I will be starting a BEME at SUNY Maritime College, and my 4 year old laptop just died. I was looking at the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 15" with an i7. How well would that one work? I know the stylus would allow me to take better notes on it.

Tony Luo (10 months ago)
please help me, I am going into engineering next year, I am thinking about either the xps 15 or the surface pro. I think in terms of performance xps obv wins, the only advantage I see in surface is its portability. I wonder whether that portability can boost up its usability in comparison to xps's performance

Sean Donoghue (11 months ago)
Hey Jake, I was just wondering, is the xps 15 or 13 a better choice?
福永茜 (1 year ago)
Hi jake! I'm resuming my studies in mechanical engineering soon and planning to get an xps 13 instead of xps 15 due to portibality reasons. Im having doubts weather the graphics card (intel 620) is sufficient enough to run solidworks or other modelling software. Should i go for more powerful g card? (Sorry for bad English)
福永茜 (11 months ago)
thanks! your comment really helps :)
Jairo Alonso (11 months ago)
福永茜 the 13’ version will be fine with sufficient RAM, but for modeling and 3D rendering I would recommend you to buy a computer with a dedicated graphics card that isn’t meant for gaming, for example Nvidia M1200. But yeah, your choice would be more than enough :)

Hey, I studying civil engineering for two years and think about buying new laptop. I cant deciside if i really new powerful video card (geforce GTX series) or i will be enougt with weaker videocard ( MX series.)? I think I need a lot of power of my processor and video card, because I will use a lot of 3d sofware (autocad, revit). So, what is your opinion. Thank you.

Alejandro Gutierrez (1 year ago)
Hey Jake, I’m going into aeronautical engineering next year, which laptop would be good for software like AutoCAD, Matlab, SolidWorks, ANSYS. Thanks
Alejandro Gutierrez (1 year ago)
Jake Voorhees It says it’s a 7500U, some people have told me that I need a 7700HQ for my career, do you think I really need such powerful laptop?
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Alejandro, thanks so much for watching and commenting brother. Welcome to 1% Nation! My favorite is the Asus linked in the video description :) let me know if you have more questions. Thanks!
Filharmaniac (1 year ago)
Hey! I am taking software engineering in the next few years. Any recommendations? I'm not much of a gamer, but I do edit a buttload of videos and animations. I am considering the Dell XPS 15, but I'm kind of tight on the budget. I also considered the Apple MacBook Pro 15 (which is more expensive), but I heard it doesn't work well with Adobe Premiere, which I prefer more than Final Cut Pro. Would really appreciate your insight on this. Cheers.
Filharmaniac (1 year ago)
I think I'm actually gonna get the asus one since the Dell XPS 15 is kind of too expensive. Thank you so much for responding, not a lot of youtubers do that. By the way, I'm actually a girl. But don't worry, I get that a lot haha. Probably because of my display pic.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Filharmaniac, thanks for watching and commenting brother! All my recommendations are in this video. My fav is the Asus. Dell XPS is great too. :) let me knwo if you have more questions ok
esam10 (1 year ago)
What do you think of the MacBook Pro
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Make sure you join the FB group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Esam10. I personally like macbooks, but you will rarely find engineers with apple products. Engineers like full control, the ability to customize everything. They want more power for the $$, and generally apple laptops will not get you the same CPU / RAM / HDD space / power for the price. Also, we have to use all these little software programs and so on, sometimes they may not be programmed for Macs. Macs are so widespread, I would not worry too much, but this is just something I see. At the end of the day, here is my advice. Buy the laptop that you like the most. The one that fits your budget and fits your needs :)
marcus hynek (1 year ago)
What about workstation laptops
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Marcus, thanks for watching and commenting. The category for workstation laptops are these, especially the first 2-3 which are bigger engineering / gamer focused laptops. Even if these are not labeled as "workstation laptops" or "mobile workstations", they are comparable. If you have some suggestions or things I have missed, feel free to comment. Thank you! Join us in the FB group man https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/ cheers!
Jeger Silve (1 year ago)
https://www.kth.se/student/kurser/kurs/SI1336?l=en Iam going to have this course next year and I am about to buy a new computer. As a student, I am on a thight budget. I would prefer to get the computer which may get the work done that I need to do and play some games from time to time such as League of Legends. The computer I am interested in is the one who in total gives me the most for the least money. Laptop or desktop PC does not really matter, I prefer to work on desktops but laptops are more convinient.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Jeger! If you're a gamer, just go with a desktop. That's what I did throughout college hahahaah :)
Cristian (1 year ago)
The asus ux430 is also a great option. It has a 14 inch screen and under 3 pounds. Great portability. $799 option has 7th gen i7, 8gb ram, and 256 gb ssd (sold on B&H) $971 option has 8th gen i7, 16gb ram, and 512gb ssd (this version is on amazon and you’ll have to pay taxes so it comes up to $1050)
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Cristian, thanks so much for that, I think this is the one http://amzn.to/2A6U7Ib. Under 3lbs wow, thanks for posting this :) Let me know what other questions you have about anything in engineering, and I can help you out. here's our FB group if you want in on that https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/ cheers!
Hello, I'm a engineering student, more specifically, I'm studying programming From now, I'm just doing the basics, as C++ and C#, but years after I'll get into deeper things as 3D modelling; I also wanted to get into videos editing (I'll try After Effects) instead of gaming So which laptop would you recommend me?, one of the mentioned or any other that you now?, I don't really care a cool looking thing nor the size, I just want to work properly without any lag and be able to save many works I'm looking forward your answer, and thanks for making that video
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Np np :) Ae is a really powerful program and you will have a solid skill if you get good @ it
I do want to master after effects! Thanks for answering, so much
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Kenji, thanks for watching and commenting. If you want to get into Ae, Adobe Aftereffects, you definitely need a beast of a machine. Powerful CPU, lots of RAM, and it won't hurt to hvae a good GPU / video card too. I would look at Asus gaming laptops for sure. I hope this helps. :)

Ravi Kiran (1 year ago)
hi jake, I'm a mechanical engineering student and planning to do matlab ,ansys,solidworks autocad 2d etc stuff like that but I really like macbooks so can we run these softwares in macbook? please reply,nice video btw.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Ravi, thanks for watching and for leaving a comment. Macbooks will be fine, just make sure you get a pretty powerful one. As a mechanical engineer, you will have to use Solidworks, which is the software program that will use the most processing power for your laptop. Sorry for delay. Let me know what else I can help you with k? If you want The 1% Engineer Kit, you can get that here http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn Cheers!

hii..tq.. this video is more useful. .and I wanna ask one question i,e. which laptop suits best for mechanical engineering students
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Shashikant, thanks for watching and for commenting. ME students should get something a littttllleee more robust than the average student, bc you will have to use solidworks. As a 3D rendering program, it takes more CPU / GPU processing power, so if any field can justify a 15" tank laptop, its you. Let me know if you have other questions k, and here's The 1% Engineer kit http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn
Banyar Myo Tin (1 year ago)
Operating solidworks on a portable laptop is not a good choice. I would just go for a cheap laptop with 8th gen processor and use the computer clusters.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Banyar, nice tip man. Love that. Let me know where you are on your engineering journey, what questions you have still, and I can make a video for you k. Also, here's The 1% Engineer Kit k http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn it's a bunch of ebooks and resume templates for your success
Alejandro Cabrera (1 year ago)
I’m in the market to buy a new laptop for school. I’m a M.E junior and will be doing some CAD with it but I want something light to carry around in school. I was looking at the HP Spectre X360 13.3” with intel UHD graphics 620 or the Spectre X360 15.6” with NVIDIA GeForce MX150. But I would prefer the 13.3” option better . What would you recommend?
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyyyy Alejandro, sorry for delay.Yeah you should go with a 13" for sure. Make sure you get a full video card version, somethign that does say NVIDIA because as an ME, you will have to do solidworks stuff. This is the most graphically intensive software of all engineers. Let me know how else I can help you ok?

Thanks , Jake ! Yeah, Lenovo p51 laptop has Nvidia Quadro M22OOM, CPU Xeon E3-1505M, 16 Gb RAM, 512 SSD
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Nice nice I'm actually making another one of these bc it turned out so well. maybe that'll make the cut. If you want the 1% Engineer kit, you can get that here k free, a bunch of ebooks http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn
Gideon Ben Rahum (1 year ago)
Hi , Jake ! I have ordered lenovo ThinkPad p51 in the shop receintly . I ve not bought it yet. I need it for CAD programs specificlly for SolidWorks . What do you think about that ? Is this laptop good enough for this goal ?
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Gideon! thanks for watching and commenting. Yeah I think the ThinkPad P51 works, but make sure you get the one with the Quadro video card and plenty of RAM. Of all engineering students, MEs using Solidworks need the most powerful computer. 3D modeling takes more CPU and processing power than anything else, more than CAD, etc. Let me know what other questions you have k, and how I can help you. You can get my 1% Engineer kit here http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn cheers!

Hello Jake! Really good video, I'm subscribing! I'm an industrial designer student, possibly mechanical engineer in the future, and I work heavily with Inventor Solidworks and 3ds max. I already have a desktop pc, so I'd need a laptop mostly to move around work and keep my projects with me at college. Not sure if I'd need it for modeling but could be a possibility. My question is, what specs should I look into when purchasing my next laptop? Or which one would you recommend to me?
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyyy Cindy, thanks for watching and for leaving the comment. Really appreciate the subscribe, cheers! Industrial design is a cool field, and so is ME. If you already have a desktop, I suggest something more portable like a surface. Like this http://amzn.to/2x96m5H otherwise, for you needing a laptop for solidworks, just look at CPU (i7 is better than i5), if its an SSD harddrive + regular harddrive, and if it actually has a videocard like a GeForce 1050i or otherwise it'll have on board graphics, so not as good. RAM is important too, look for DD4 rather than DD3 and more gb of total RAM. Do you have The 1% Engineer Kit yet? I don't think so, it's a bunch of ebooks and resume templates to help you win http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn. Here's The 1% FB group too, I'd like to invite you https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/

There are way better picks than these here. I'm not saying the list is bad though. But for Engineering student you want to go hard on battery life too. Also the list could include 2 yoga devices since they will be becoming very competitive in the 8'th generation Intel processors.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyyyy thanks for watching, commenting, and thank you for the tips, appreciate that. And welcome to 1% Nation! I'm most likely doing another one of these for black friday bc its been such a popular video. So I'll keep all that in mind. Let me know where you are in your engineering journey, what questions / concerns / issue you may be having, and I can help you out with those! Cheers!

Adolfo S.B (1 year ago)
Nice video I can't believe you don't have way more likes and views, liked and subscribed Now what's you recommendation? I'm studying engineer in sustainable development but I always get involved in mechatronic projects I need a laptop that can handle solid works and auto cad programs but don't get slow over time I was thinking in a MacBooks pro 15inch and maybe partition it to use windows so I can get best thing out of both worlds but it also way too expensive so...? I don't know what your recommendation would be I also don't want to be buying a laptop every 2 or so years :/
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyy Adolfo, thank you so much :) Really appreicate you watching, commenting, and subbing :) It means a lot to me. I started 1% Engineer earlier this year, so it's really only been going on for 6-7 months and it's been a grind to 1k subs, my goal is 10k in 2018 and 100k in 2019 !!! Great questions. MEs who will be using solidworks have the highest laptop requirements of all engineers. It's important for you to have more of a beast machine than something portable or budget. Look at gaming rigs. Look at laptops with i7 CPUs, dedicated graphics cards / GPUS (so not on board graphics) look for Nvidia card in the specs, and you should probably have an SSD as well. I do not advise Macbooks for engineering students. Macs are stereotypically for creatives and artsy people who are not tech oriented, cannot troubleshoot, and would rather pay a lot more $$$ for convenience vs processing power. You can get a fast / powerful Mac, but it's incredibly more expensive to do so. If you love Mac stuff, get it. But if you are not already in love, don't go down that road. I suggest you just get a tank 15" Asus gaming rig like this http://amzn.to/2y94kqg You should join my community, sign up here http://bit.ly/2hAiytn and I'll email you the 1% Engineer kit (7 ebooks and 4 resume templates), and invite you to the 1% FB group!!! Cheers, ask away with any other questions ok!!! Cheers! -Jake

Would the lenovo ideapad 710S or the thinkpad 13 be good laptops for engineering?
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Oooo that's a great field. I have a few BMEs in my engineering community and FB group. Let me know what questions you have, and I can make a video about that stuff! Cheers Here's the FB group info https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/
Michelle Chau (1 year ago)
Jake Voorhees I'm not an engineer yet. I actually just started my senior year of high school and I plan on studying biomedical engineering!
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Hey Michelle, yeah I think either one of those work, especially if you're going for portability, the specs on the 710S look good http://amzn.to/2yflXAw What kind of engineer are you? Cheers! thanks for the comment!!
David White (1 year ago)
Hey Jake... I'm an aerospace engineering student and need a new laptop in a few weeks. I will be starting to do CAD this year and want a laptop that will last me for the next 4+ years. I do watch movies and play a few games on my laptop on occasion. Someone recommended the lenovo p51(budget isn't a huge issue) which is an absolute beast but seems quite heavy and in some ways too much. I'm a little partial to Lenovo right now because of their awesome student discount but I'm wondering what you would recommend for me.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyy David, sorry for the delay man! Aerospace is a great field and one that I'm veryyy into nowadays. I just looked at the specs for the laptop, i7, dedicated video card and 1TB storage, yeah it'll be great for you. Here's my amazon link if you wanna support me and 1% nation http://amzn.to/2jQkQF4
Navi IvAn Cfp (1 year ago)
laptop for civil engineering please..... any advice?
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyyy Navi, any of the laptops in this video would be great for civil, I personally like the Asus very much!
Angela Albrecht (1 year ago)
Starts at 2:35
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Yeah Angela, feel free to foward the entire list and I can make a full video about that. What school are you going to and what type of engineer are you striving to become? Thanks!
Angela Albrecht (1 year ago)
You are quite helpful! :D I have a long list going, but once I narrow it down I'll be sure to ask you.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Thanks Angela :) and thanks for watching, let me know where you are on your engineering journey, what questions you may have, and I can help you out with those. Thanks!
Bryan Iroanusi (1 year ago)
Im starting chemical engineering this year in the uk but i have a small budget of £200-£350 Any recommendations
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyyy Bryan, thanks for watching and commenting, and welcome now to 1% nation! I think you should look as surface's and smaller laptops that will be budget friendly. What type of engineering will you be doing? Let me know what other questions you have, and I can make a video about that stuff, cheers!
Rumeel12708 (1 year ago)
Do you guys recommend the microsoft surface pro 2017? Why or why not?
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Thank you! I'm glad you mentioned this. Cheers! Let me know if you haev questions ok
thalivinlegend11 (1 year ago)
Absolutely... portability and the surface pen make it worth it for engineers...
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyyy again Rumeel, thanks for the reply. I'm a civil engineer too by the way, so definitely let me know any specific civil questions you have, or future concerns, whatever. Thanks so much for the good words. Feel free to connect on FB too - I can invite you to the 1% Engineer FB groups, cheers! https://www.facebook.com/JakeVoor
Rumeel12708 (1 year ago)
Jake Voorhees hello, well Im bearly starting my journey on my civil engineering major, and yeah i want something portable for everyday carry, and thanks man glad to have found your channel, ive been looking through your vids and a lot of great content! Keep up the vids CHEERS!
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
heyyyy Rumeel, thanks for watching and thanks for leaving a comment. Welcome now to 1% Nation!! Let me know where you are on your engineering journey, what other questions you may have, and I can make a video about that. I think a surface is a good option, especially if you have to walk long distances or know you will be using your laptop for portable reasons often. If you are a mechanical engineer and will be using solidworks a lot, I may not recommend a surface as you will need a more beefy laptop that has a dedicated graphics card for solidworks. Let me know your situation so I can help you more, thanks!
Diego Muñoz (1 year ago)
What laptop do you recommend to me? I'm studying industrial engineering and it needs to run Matlab
Jordi Gálvez Palma (4 months ago)
Hey tio. Como te va con tu HP SPECTRE X360? Yo empiezo en 2 años el máster en Ingenieria Ambiental y he de utilizar mucho MATLAB y me han dicho que he de hacer muchos trabajos y proyectos con el ordenador. He estado mirando el Macbook Pro 13" y el HP SPECTRE. Dime tu opinión porfavor.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
I think that's a good choice!! Let me know what other questions you have, and I can help you out w those, thanks! -Jake
Diego Muñoz (1 year ago)
I'm studying in Madrid. Thank you for your answer, i've decided to buy the hp spectre x360.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyyy Diego, thanks for watching, and thanks for commenting brother. Welcome to 1% Nation! Matlap is a script and text based program, with no really crazy 3D processing. You can graph 3D images but it's nothing compared to a Solidworks environment. I would therefore get something that fits your needs. If you are on a budget, or have a big campus, I do encourage a portable smaller 13" Asus or Hp to most students. If you can afford it and may be less portable, like you just want a beast fast computer, get a 15" asus with a built in graphics card (look for things like Nvidia Geforce XXXX card (the 1050 is popular right now). Do let me know what other questions you have, and I can help you out. Where are you studying engineering? Cheers!
Rami Al-Sudani (1 year ago)
Hey Jake! I am about to be a freshman (medstudent). I am having it very hard choosing laptop since I want one that can be occasionally used for gaming but mostly studying/videos. But lastly but importantly I want it to last long. The ones I've been looking at atm is *Asus ZenBook UX430UQ 14", it has 940MX, i5, 8gb ram and 256 gb ssd. *ASUS vivobook 15,6", i7-6500U, GTX960m, 8 gb ram, 256 ssd. And lastly *Lenovo Ideapad 14" i7, 8gb ram dd4, 256ssd, 940mx. Which one would you recommend? What attracts me to the Zenbook mostly is the looks. It looks modern, smooth and seems like a nice computer you can chill throughout the years.
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Wow Rami, sorry I missed this! Are you still looking for a laptop? Yeah I like the Zenbook too, I think this is the right one. Good call, that 256gb SSD will be awesome, here's the link to support 1% Nation :) ty sir! http://amzn.to/2xGPBkQ
TheTiemotje (1 year ago)
Hey, will an Asus Zenbook Flip S with i5, 256gb do for mechanical engineering? It needs to be able to run SolidWorks as well... thanks in advance!
Jake Voorhees (1 year ago)
Heyyy TheTiemotje thanks for watching and thanks for the comment. Welcome now to 1% nation! I honestly am not sure if this is the best laptop for you. Solidworks is a 3D graphic intensive program, and generally the suggestion is that you get a laptop with a dedicated videocard if you are going to be using Solidworks. This laptop, particularly the i5 with just 8gbs of RAM version, is designed to be lightweight, portable, user friendly and cheaper. You will most likely not have the best solidworks experience on it. I suggest getting a more beefy Asus like a 15" with it's own videocard. Otherwise, if $$ is an issue, you can buy the i5 that you mention, and use university computers for solidworks. Please let me know what other questions you have, and you can email me at [email protected] ok. Cheers!
