I am an engineering student looking to learn a cad program. After starting with Autocad I realized Solidworks may better suit my needs. After having Autocad flow issues with my Surface pro 3 I am looking to buy a computer for Solidworks. I'm looking to purchase the linked Dell Precision T3500, it seems to meet specs. I am looking for an outside opinion on whether this machine will meet my learning needs. Thanks.
