I would like to purchase a laptop for work purposes (to run AutoCAD) but have limited knowledge regarding laptops. After conducting research, I found that programs such as AutoCAD are CPU-intensive and so I have looked at laptops with decent specs for processors.
My budget is $1,000-$1,100.
I have limited experience with purchasing laptops, so I would really appreciate your recommendations. I've browsed online and come to choose between these two laptops which are currently on sale:
Inspiron 15 Laptop ($1,137)
Processor: 11th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-1165G7 Processor (12MB Cache, up to 4.7 GHz)
Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® MX330 with 2GB GDDR5 graphics memory
Hard Drive: 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive
Display: 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) Anti-glare LED Backlight Non-Touch Narrow Border WVA Display

ThinkPad E15 Gen 2 - 11th Gen Intel ($1,104)
Processor: 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-1135G7 (4C / 8T, 2.4 / 4.2GHz, 8MB)
Video Card: Integrated Intel Iris® Xe Graphics

Display: 15.6" FHD (1920x1080) WVA 250nits Anti-glare

Which laptop would you choose between the two? After looking at the CPU specs on CPUBenchmark.net, I found that the CPU specs were similar, so I had difficulty deciding which one.
Thank you for your help!
