    Requesting Review of New Laptop Specs

    Scott Boerman

      Shopping for a new laptop.  Considering the attached, I'm looking for advice about weak spots/overkill.  The Solidworks design work is tooling, the actual designs created are not very heavy but often the part data that the tooling is designed around is heavy, recently read in 900MB igs file, designed and then output 800MB step file including part data.  Had to have the part data partially suppressed to work at a normal speed.  Also attached is a screenshot from the Solidworks website which seems to show that the system and graphics card are suitable.  Currently I am slowed by translating big files in and out, and surfacing work (multi-selecting) is sometimes slow when working with large files.

      Leaning toward Dell only because of a couple existing docking ports which are handy. 

      Thank you in advance for any advice!
