Hardware recommendations for SketchUp Pro with the attendant Layout package

What are the recommended hardware recommendations for the 2021 version of SketchUp Pro with the attendant Layout package

See other posts in the Computer Advice category here.

Please update your profile with the correct SketchUp version.

The “official” view:

My recommendation:
CPU: One of the models in the top part of this benchmark list or the one for laptop processors. There is a huge variation in their price points, and your actual choice would depend on what other things beside SketchUp you do - like CPU rendering that requires many CPU cores. SketchUp by itself uses only one processor thread.
RAM: computers today usually come with 16GB. That’s what I have, but to a new machine I would put 32GB for some future proofing.
GPU: A Nvidia RTX card.
SSD disk: you know better than others how much storage space you need.
A wheel mouse that fits your hand, and a keyboard that you like typing with.
