Default New laptop for studies

Hey guys,

I need quick help. I want to buy new laptop for my studies. I'll be studying urban engineering, so there will be a lot of draughtsmanship and work with drawing programs. I'm not really a gamer, I just purely need laptop for writing, daily needs and my studies. Can suggest the best option for me? The price tag is not a problem, but it would be better under 1200 euros.

P.S. What about Mac? Some people say it is good for engineers, other say it is rubbish for such profession/course.

Mac = Waste of money unless ur a photographer, musician or video editor imo.

To be honest, if you're just using it for daily needs, all you need is something like an M$ Surface or maybe something even cheaper. A decent new intel i3/i5 laptop should be ok as long as you're not running anything demanding. (most new laptops can run CAD programs easily if thats what you need)

My Build
CPU - AMD X4 860k @ 3.7ghz
GPU - Nvidia GeForce 780
RAM - 2x HyperX Fury 4gb
SSD - 120gb Kingston Hyper X
HDD - WD 320gb
