Hello I am hoping someone can give me some advice regarding the purchase of a secondhand mobile workstation for using Solidworks at home. I have a very limited budget and have looked to find the best system i can afford but am concerned at the performance level of this specification.

Dell Precision M4800

i7-4800MQ

32GB RAM

Nvidia Quadro K1100M (2GB)

240GB SSD

Windows 10 Pro

I will be working on assemblies up to 1000 components (usually smaller) and do not require any rendering, motion or FEA work. My current office system is :

Dell Precision T1700 

Xeon E3-1245 v3

16GB RAM

Nvidia Quadro P2000 (5GB)

500GB HDD

Windows 7 Pro

Will the mobile system be noticeably slower than the office system for the type of work that I am doing (modelling, assemblies, drawings)?

Thank you.
