FAQ’s

Illustrations and images shown on this page may differ slightly to the actual machine supplied, including but not limited to the ‘CAD’ logo and Metabox manufacturers markings.

When will I receive my CAD laptop?

All machines are built to order following confirmation of payment and are added to the ongoing production run. Units are typically dispatched within 5 work days, however, due to differing stock levels of components and pressure at peak sale periods this time can vary. We will keep you informed if any delays are likely.

Can I customise my CAD laptop order?

Whilst we have configured our machines to suit 90% of users needs and budgets, you can modify how much RAM, display size, resolution, SSD capacity or even change your version of Windows.
Ask us for a specialised quotation for your desired configuration.

Desktops vs. Laptops for CAD

Because of the advanced nature of modern GPU’s and CPU’s contained in these laptops, the difference in speed between our CAD configured laptops and an equivalent desktop is zero.

One trade-off is that the cooling fans kick-in more often on a laptop due to the confined space in which the components are housed.

Laptops provide convenience that a big box and lots of cables can’t compete with.

Clients are so satisfied and happy with our laptops that we no longer include desktops in our range at all.

Can I use a docking station to power the laptop?

Yes you can use these laptops with docking stations for monitor connectivity if desired (but not required). Docking stations don’t provide enough power via the Thunderbolt/USB-C ports to drive these powerful workstations, so you will still need to use the power supply that is delivered with the laptop.

What communication ports do the machines have?

Pro/Pro+/Supreme/Beast

3 x USB 3.2 Gen1 port (Type A, 1 x Power USB port, AC/DC)
1 x Thunderbolt port
1 x Mini DisplayPort 1.4

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

1 x HDMI 1.4b output port
1 x 2-in-1 Audio Combo Jack (Headphone / Microphone)
1 x RJ-45 LAN port
1 x DC in jack

What about cooling?

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, lengthening the effective life of your machine as they keep the components at optimal operating temperature. Fan speed is automatically adjusted from whisper quiet to fast and furious, drawing cooler air through its patented cooling system design, unrivalled by any other machines on the market.

Why are these better than retail store models?

  • Our CAD laptops are configured specifically to run CAD and 3D rendering software, and run them well. Store-bought machines may or may not work with the CAD software you are using.
  • The advice you get from most staff in retail stores is often completely incorrect as it relates to CAD software.  We know what we are talking about.
  • Better value. Our machines are less expensive than in retail stores because we don’t have to pay sales staff or rent floor space. Our machines are built to order and are delivered to your door.
  • 3 year warranty included.

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 machine 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.

Quadro GPU's vs G-Force RTX GPU's

For a long time the producers of products like SolidWorks, IronCAD, AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit have been recommending the use of Quadro GPU’s for their software. Quadro cards have been finely tuned to support OpenGL and also have software drivers that have been developed with 3D CAD in mind.

Sounds good right? Not quite…

This focus on CAD also means poorer performance with virtually all other software being used on the same machine. Quadro’s were and still are also significantly more expensive as they are catering for a smaller market and don’t have the economies of scale that modern gaming GPU’s have in their favour.

Even our previous range of CAD Laptops with G-Force RTX 3000 series GPU’s are superior to the Quadro’s at supporting games, image processing and other OpenGL and Active-X applications. Many CAD products now also support both Active-X and Open-GL modes of operation.

Our latest range of machines sport the RTX 4000 series GPU’s and raise the bar even further

 We recommend the RTX 4080 or 4090 for anyone that would otherwise choose to purchase a Quadro as this is superior to the Quadro in CAD performance and far superior in all other non-CAD applications, as well as being better value.
