TC & Sketchup

Hi all
I need to recommend a laptop to my (new!) boss that will run TC and Sketchup
So far from the spec sheets I've got
2.1+ GHz processor
500MB of available hard-disk space
Windows VISTA (64-bit) Windows 7 (64-bit), 8 and 10 (32 and 64-bit)
We do renderings and fly throughs of buildings but I'm not at all confident of the sort of graphics card we need.
The recomendations are pointing to gamer type machines with all the above plus NVidia GTX1060/70. Would that do it?

Attached is minimum of what you need.
4GB Ram is for a 32 bit and only minimum, and 8 as minimum for 64 bit, many are happy with 16 GB, i use 32 GB Ram
TC Pro Platinum is 1,8 GB+ installfile of 0,9 GB, then 0,5 GB  HD is to small, Deluxe is about 1,6 GB
so assuming you think of 500 GB

Cards is listed in attachement


V20, V21, 2015/ 16/ 17/ 18/ 19 Pro. Platinum
Deluxe 2015/ 16/ 19
RedSDK enabled
Windows 10 Home Premium 64 bit, 32 GB
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 780m, 1 GB
