hello everyone, im a student in mechanical enineering and would like to buy solidworks product for designing a project. which one do you recommend me to buy ? and how can I buy it ? because the site is complicated couldnt get the process
If you are a ME student, your school may already have SolidWorks available for you at no charge. Check with one of your department heads or the Dean of the engineering school. There may also be a possibility of accessing SolidWorks running on a server at your school. If neither of these ideas work out, contact your local SolidWorks reseller and they can assist you.

In either case, make sure that the computer that you are going to use meets the minimum system requirements for SolidWorks. It is much more demanding the running things like word, excel, etc.

Choosing a new laptop
Technically there are two types of projects you could use SolidWorks on: Personal/student projects and projects that will go to market.
If you are doing a personal project like building a deck you could potentially use the student version while attending school.
If you are designing something to sell you should have a non-student license. A SolidWorks Standard license would be sufficient for most things in the one person design process, especially if you are new to it.
If you are just getting started and attending school you could probably use the student version to begin with and then get a full license when you are ready to redesign into the release version of the product. You will need to purchase through a reseller as Steven said.
