 NEED A MORE CAPABLE LAPTOP

All you need is a SOLIDWORKS ID, or a new or existing 3DEXPERIENCE ID.

I currently have a Lenovo P52 Thinkpad, which according to the specs I was shown before buying as seen in the first column this should have been an exceptional machine.

Unfortunately, this laptop has been a lemon ever since I recieved it; and after trying every possible fix, contacting Lenovo numerous times, I finally gave up, but the experience has made me nervous about my next purchase.

Can anyone make a suggestion regarding what is a good laptop that does genuinely perform for a budget of around the $5K mark
