Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to pay extra for shipping?

No, our price includes delivery anywhere in Australia and New Zealand as well as most other destinations around the world.

When will I receive my CAD laptop?

Following confirmation of payment your order is added to the production run and is usually dispatched from the factory within 5-7 work days. Due to differing stock levels of components and peak sale periods this time can vary. We will keep you informed if any delays are likely.

Note: a global shortage of semiconductors is causing delivery times to be extended across all equipment that uses computers including phones and cars!

Can I customise my order?

Definitely. Whilst we have configured several machines to suit different needs and budgets, you can modify various aspects of these machines such as changing or adding more SSD drives, increasing the amount or speed of RAM, swapping from 15.6 to a 17.3 screen.
Ask us for a specialized quotation for your desired configuration. Please note that you can add up to 3 additional monitors to these units (supplied by others) for a total of 4 screens!

Do you also have 4K display models?

Yes, we have 4K options for all machines. 4K screens will take up to 4x the energy to run and exert higher GPU loads. Regular FHD 1920 x 1080 screens are preferred because menus are easier to read and have better software compatibility, portability, price, power and weight savings. You can plug-in up to 3 additional monitors (hi-def 4K if desired) to get more display real-estate. 

Desktops vs. Laptops

Not long ago it was true to say that a desktop computer was significantly faster and cheaper than a laptop machine, however because of the advanced nature of modern GPU’s and CPU’s contained in these particular laptops, the difference in speed between these and an equivalent specification desktop is negligible. You are however paying a little extra for the convenience, higher build quality and built-in screen. Clients have been so satisfied with our laptops that we will no longer be adding desktops to our range.

What communication ports do the machines have?

Pro, Pro PLUS and Supreme Models

3 x USB 3.2 Gen1 port (Type A, 1 x Power USB port, AC/DC)
1 x Thunderbolt 3 port
1 x Mini DisplayPort 1.4
1 x HDMI 2.0 output port (with HDCP)
1 x 2-in-1 Audio Jack (Microphone / S/PDIF optical)
1 x 2-in-1 Audio Jack (Headphone / Microphone)
1 x RJ-45 LAN port
1 x DC-in jack

Budget Model

1 x USB 2.0 port
1 x USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1) port
1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 port (Type A)
1 x Thunderbolt port
1 x DisplayPort 1.3 over USB 3.1 Gen 2 (Type-C)
1 x Mini Display 1.2 port
1 x HDMI output port (with HDCP)
1 x 2-in-1 Audio Jack (Headphone / Microphone)
1 x Microphone jack
1 x RJ-45 LAN port
1 x DC-in jack

What about cooling fans?

When your CAD Laptop is being pushed hard by your CAD or rendering software, state-of-the-art cooling fans will kick-in to maintain a comfortable working environment for the components in the machine and you the user. Having such an efficient cooling system lengthens the life of the computer. Whilst not completely silent, the fans are the most efficient and quietest in the class. It’s all part of the high build quality inherent in these machines.

Why are these less expensive than retail store models?

These machines are not available in retail stores. They are better priced because there is no retailer adding a margin to the sale and no sales commissions to pay to sales staff on the shop floor. We source direct from the manufacturer and pass the savings on to you. You deal direct with the manufacturer in Australia for any support issues to ensure service is fast and communication is clear.

What is included in the Premium Care support?

Premium Care is a warranty and after sales service that covers you in the unlikely event that your laptop has a manufacturing fault or failure.

Direct.  The warranty is provided directly by the manufacturer in Australia so you get your issue resolved quickly and covered by Australian consumer laws.

Phone: There is a direct Australian phone number you can call for support.

Onsite Pickup and Return. In association with Australian Air Express, DHL Express and Star-track Express, the manufacturer will ensure your notebook is picked up, typically on the same day as your warranty claim, and is shipped back to you within 7 days of arrival at the service centre.

Free Loan Machine. If the manufacturer is unable to meet the 7 day commitment due to unforeseen circumstances, a loan unit will be arranged free of charge for temporary use whilst the defective product remains in service. All freight costs will be borne by the manufacturer.

DOA Policy. If you’re unlucky enough to experience a fault with your notebook within the first 14 days of purchase, the manufacturer will have a brand new notebook prepared for immediate swap over delivered to your door (credit card security required).

Burnt Pixel Policy. Production technology does not guarantee LCD Screens can be manufactured without defective or “burnt” pixels. These pixels are described as “dots” or pin-head sized discolorations on the screen. Any amount of burnt pixels greater or equal to six, dispersed over the LCD, is deemed to be warrantable and any amount of burnt pixels greater or equal to three clustered (within 1.5mm radius) together to be warrantable. However, due to the often misunderstood nature of this issue and our suppliers focus on delivering the highest levels of customer satisfaction, the manufacturer will replace an LCD screen with even one “burnt” pixel if you notify them within the first 7 days of new product warranty.

The Manufacturer warrants its laptops to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a statutory period of 12 months from the date of purchase. The Trade Practices Act(1974) implies warranties and conditions into consumer contracts. These warranties and conditions are independent and are not affected by the warranty offered by the manufacturer which may extend beyond the 12 month period.

Warranty details are provided on the web site. The warranty covers all components except for batteries and accessories. Notebook batteries are considered consumable items and will reduce in operational life over time. They are replaceable.

Do you supply outside Australia?

Yes, we ship units direct from the factory to almost any destination in the world. There is no additional cost to most destinations, but the warranty requires that you ship the unit back to Australia (at your expense) in the unlikely event of a fault with the unit requiring replacement or service parts.
