I'm looking at buying a new Laptop for revit and have been looking at the Dell XPS 17
Spec as Below for £1079.
The Graphics card has not been tested by Autodesk and therefor a bit of a risk paying this sort of money. Could anyone advise me if you are running this system on Revit or have recently purchased a similar system that you would recommend for running Revit 2012 and 2013.

Do not expect a super performance from this card. But in general, for models of the average is pretty good graphics. However, the Nvidia driver version 301.24 from fall at work. 295.73 - the most stable driver
