    You'll be shocked at how well ZBrush runs on a Surface Pro, especially the i7.

    ZBrush is CPU-based, so the processor and RAM are what's important. Same for KeyShot (although...

    Marmoset is like Keyshot, a really simple and good renderer. The difference being KeyShot is cpu based and marmoset is gpu based. Which suits you best depends on your system and needs.
