    I'm in the market for a powerful CAD laptop, so it needs a good processor and good graphics. I'm not bothered about battery life.

    It seems difficult to find anything.

    Fast, but not a dekstop cpu.

    To OP, last time I saw a dekstop cpu for a laptop was around the i7-950 times, it had a miniscule battery life and got really hot, it's not a good idea, laptops have laptop cpu's for a reason.

    If you want fast make sure to get the intel XM series, but not the top one, usually go two below top for a decent price then overclock up.

    You can always play a cooling fan underneath whatever laptop you choose. It dropped the temps on mine considerably.

    Eurocom, Sager - and lots of other brands (One, XMX, Schenker, Prostar, whatever...), are all Clevo clones/built into Clevo chassis and usually configurable.

    Fixed a laptop that used desktop RAM a few weeks back, first time in decades Ive seen that - I know 100% because I upgraded their RAM with an old desktop PCs RAM
