The following Laptops meet the system requirements set by Autodesk Maya 2018's developers.

Wonder why you get better systems than requested?

That's because TekAdvisor limits results based on a maximum price rather than a maximum performance. For instance: If 3-stars or even 5-stars systems are available in the same price range as 1-star options, I'm pretty sure you should consider the better-performing options as well.
