Hi all - I'm asking this for a friend studying architecture and needing a new laptop. She'd like a laptop able to live up to 4-5 years without many problems, both for personal and university use. The general requirements seems to be 8gb of RAM, i5 or i7 processor, and a 128/256 SSD. There's talk about a dedicated graphics card rather than an integrated one. Given that from what I've read the main difference between dedicated/integrated is the speed and eventual battery consumption, I'm asking which Macbook model would be the best, considering price as well. I'd also like better understand the difference between dedicated and integrated graphics card in this case. (Considering the lifetime needed I'd go for a Mac, as PCs in my experience tend to die after 2 or 3 years of heavy use). Thank you all for your help.
