  • I don't currently own a Windows computer (I have a Mac).  As I weigh my options for a new PC I am wondering if SolidWorks will run well on a Windows Surface Pro 4?  Here are the specs of the top model:
    • 6th Gen Intel Core i7, 256GB SSD, 16GB RAM
    • 12.3-inch PixelSense touchscreen display
    • Surface Pen included
    • Windows 10 Pro
  • I am interested in the portability of this type of computer for use on cramped coach airplane seats.


  • I am also wondering if the surface pen can be used as an input device for SolidWorks?
