I'm looking for a recommendation on Dell laptops that can handle everything. I've entered my graduation course in Interior design and looking for a laptop that can help me with my daily tasks and handle heavy software like Sketchup, FreeCad, etc. These tools are what my teachers tell me to use; they can change in the future, but they are the ones they recommend now. Also, what kind of configuration should I look at, and what is the budget for a laptop?

This question would probably have been better asked in the laptop forums than the desktop forum. But not a problem. If you want power for CAD then something like the XPS 17 series. They are very powerful but that power does not come cheap. They range from $2500 CAD to around $4200 CAD. Keep in mind that the system requirements for both Sketchup and FreeCad are not very excessive so the higher end systems of the XPS series may be a bit of overkill for the present but as you stated that can change down the road. Do some research and also ask your instructors what they recommend as I am sure they have heard the question many times in their teaching careers.
Thanks for your response. I'll consider your suggestion and really appreciate your help. Bless you.
Thanks, Anna for your recommendations, I'll check this. Got busy with assignments and all so couldn't check the answers here.
