Do I have to pay extra for postage?

Our pricing includes delivery anywhere in Australia. New Zealand buyers pay extra for shipping.

When will I receive my CAD laptop?

After payment confirmation, we would expect to have it built and delivered to your door within 9 to 14 days.

What would be the best laptop for IronCAD, SolidWorks or Inventor?

The CAD Workstation Quadro. The Quadro GPU is the reason this machine is perfect for typical 3D MCAD software and it is also good for AutoCAD users due to the GPU drivers available for AutoCAD. It seems nearly all solid modellers such as IronCAD, Creo, Solid Works, Inventor etc benefit greatly by using the Quadro GPU, making the additional cost of these machines well worth the investment.

What would be the best laptop for RealCAD, BricsCAD, Vectorworks or AutoCAD?

Definitely the CAD Workstation Professional with the RTX GPU. CAD software that support OpenGL benefit from the use of this Graphics Processing Unit more than they do from the more expensive Quadro cards. The combination of components in this machine along with its slim attractive profile and near edge to edge screen make this our most popular CAD tuned laptop for most CAD software.

Can I customise my order?

Definitely. Whilst we have configured 3 different machines to ideally suit different needs and budgets, you can modify various aspects of these machines such as changing or adding more hard drives, increasing the amount of RAM or changing the warranty period etc.

Just ask us for a specialised 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!

Can I use these laptops for gaming and or Lumion software?

Yes. The CAD Workstation Professional in particular is perfect for modern gaming enthusiasts at this price point. You would need to spend about double to get just a little more performance improvement. And because Lumion uses the same technolgy as mots gaming engines, a good gaming machine is typically a good machine to run Lumion. 

Do you also have 17" models?

Yes. However we typically recommend the smaller machines for portability, money and weight savings. Because you can plug-in up to 3 full size monitors into we think having a 17″ monitor on the Laptop is more of a hindrance than a benefit. If you have a need for a 17″ however just let the team know and they’ll provide you with a quotation for your consideration.

Why are these less expensive than equivalent models?

Even though these machines are among the fastest CAD laptops on earth – really, there is no retailer adding a margin to the sale and no sales commissions to pay. We buy direct from the manufacturer and pass on the savings.

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 Warranty. The warranty is provided directly by the manufacturer so you have no need to go through CAD International to get your issue resolved quickly.

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

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 shipped back to you within 7 days of arrival at the service centre in Perth.

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. Currently production technology does not guarantee LCD Screens can be produced 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 manufacturers web site. The warranty covers all components except for batteries. Notebook batteries are considered consumable items and will reduce in operational life over time.
