ZBrush, has very specific system minimum specifications (requirements). First, this Sculpting Software is completely CPU Based. (ZBrush does not use the GPU). So, a fast processor with multiple cores is the bare minimum for the laptop.

Secondly, ZBrush writes large temporary files to storage. This ensures that your work is optimized, even when you work with a model with millions of polygons. Depending on the model you work on, the storage taken can quickly take up many GB of storage. (scratch disk)

Also, you must have enough memory to handle all the background applications, the system and ZBrush itself.

Lastly, ZBrush works with both Mac OS and Windows. However, it is rear that a person will use this software only. You might need to work with other software such as Autodesk Maya, 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, Blender and Lightwave 3D. (ZBrush offers integration with these)
