Looking at getting a new machine at work. Was originally wanting to get a Surface Book 2 as it has the versatility (on the go) capabilities I need, as well as the 2-in-1 (tablet/laptop) feature. IT guys told me however, that it needs to be Dell based. The offered up the Latitude 12 5285 (see attached). Short specs: 16 GB of RAM; 7th gen i7 dual core processor; on-board intel graphics card. To me it doesn't seem like the graphics card will keep up (also not on the certified or tested lists). Has anyone had any experience running solidworks on one of these 2-in-1s? Any suggestions for any other Dell 2-in-1s?

 

Thanks.
