Minimum laptop requirements

Looks like my desktop is nearing the end of its useful life and doesn’t have the capacity for Windows 11. As I am mainly retired and barely use SU these days I am thinking of replacing with large laptop that can sit on my desk. I have SU Pro. What should IO be looking for that would do the job?

Start here: SketchUp Hardware and Software Requirements | SketchUp Help for minimums. Have a look through the posts in the Computer Advice category here, too.

For SketchUp faster CPU is better and generally Nvidia GeForce/GTX graphics cards seem to be the most robust as far as OpenGL support goes. A currrent or reasonably recent GTX-series card with plenty of its own RAM will serve you well.

Thank you for your advice Dave. I will look into it later this week.
