I have found the asus computers best for me. You can get them with as much computing power and graphics needed and they are built more solid than some other brands I have used. Just my opinion.
We have the Handheld Rugged field tables with Windows 10. 8" and 10" at a really great price.
I would recommend you the major components below.
ZBook 17 G3 Laptop:
Nvidia Quadro M5000 with 8GB dedicated GDDR5 video memory
Intel Xeon E3-1575M v5 processor+ Intel Pro Graphics P580
64 GB 2133 DDR4 SDRAM (4DIMM) ECC
Intel Xeon G6 processor Lable 1TB SATA-3, TLC SDD.

I have successfully used the Panasonic Toughpad. It has GPS built in which can be accessed by some CAD applications as well as GIS applications. The Windows Surface Pro has also been good in the field. It is cheaper and lighter than the Toughpad but needs to have a ruggerdised case fitted to survive being dropped.
in fact im conflicted between panasonic fz g1 and the surface pro 6 .
The surface pro is beter cause it is cheaper and lighter and can attached to a keyboard, but i dont know if its good for working with autocad and styles , did you try it ??!
