Hi guys, I am planning to buy Lumion 8 and along with it, I am planning to buy a laptop though I am on a tight budget.

My choices are:

Acer Nitro 7
CPU: i5-9th gen
GPU: 1660ti

and

HP Omen 15
CPU: i7-8750
GPU: 1060 3gb

I would also like to know if Acer Nitro laptops tend to become too hot when using rendering softwares. Would you recommend it? Cheers!

Hi ichbindienummereins,

Thank you for your interest in purchasing Lumion.

For your information, Lumion 8 was replaced by Lumion 9 last year and is therefore not for sale.

Based on the 2 choices laptop that you gave us, I would recommend the Acer Nitro 7 because the graphics card is slightly superior to the HP Omen 15's.

The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti has 6GB of memory which will let you work on more complex Lumion Scenes.

It looks like the Acer Nitro 7 doesn't have the overheating problem that the Acer Nitro 5 had so I think it's the better choice here.

In addition, the NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti has got 6 GB memory whereas the GTX 1060 only has 3 GB.

To render videos in 4k resolution (3840x2160 pixels), a minimum of 6 GB graphics card memory is required.

It looks like the Acer Nitro 7 doesn't have the overheating problem that the Acer Nitro 5 had so I think it's the better choice here.

Disclaimer: We can't guarantee that there aren't any heat issues when using Lumion on any hardware. To be on the safe side, you should always read reviews before purchasing a new PC. A few of the reviews of the Acer Nitro 7 laptop do mention that it can get very hot when playing demanding 3D games.
