I have been having computer issues lately, and our IT department is not really an IT department. It has been decided that we are ditching my HP and going to a Dell. They have spec'ed out the latop listed below, and I am wondering if this is going to suit my needs. I do very heavy modeling, working in large assemblies and working with multipage drawings. Also, I perform a good bit of rendering, and simulation, as well as using 3DVia composer. Due to a heavy workload, and required fast turnaround times, I cannot afford to have PC related slow downs on a new machine and I would appreciate it if the experts could check this unit out and let me know the deal. I can push for a better unit, as long as I have a strong reason to back that push up with, and thats where I could use some help.
Dell XPS 17
Any Thoughts? Thanks!
