OK, well we look forward to you finding the right type of laptop, and purchasing the latest Lumion version (which is now version 7.0). Lumion v6.0 Pro is a year old and there were two major updates to that done during the year. And now, as you will see from the Lumion web
site we are at version 7.
As Morten mentioned the GTX 960M is below Lumion specifications and is not recommended. You need, even for single building scenes to find a graphics card that meets or exceeds our recommendations:
1. Which computer do you need for Lumion?
2. Which graphics card do you need?
3. Passmark: Videocard Benchmarks
Web site Guide: Hardware for Lumion
At minimum that's then the GTX 970M with a Passmark
Having a Passmark that gets close to minimum specification will not provide the performance or a suitable experience, especially during deadline periods when you want to get the best from Lumion. Remember, the faster and more powerful the graphics card, the more you can do, and the quicker it can be done, resulting in a faster turn-around to clients.
8GB of RAM is also a minimum, and we do suggest at least 16GB. There is usually a nominal increase in cost, even for laptops to get it increased these days, and you will benefit from that also.
