Hi, I am thinking to buy a new laptop and I found a (2nd hand) Asus GL551j. Will it run Solidworks or it is a waste of money. I am not goinig to create complex assesmblies for the moment (an average of 20-30 parts per assembly) and I aslo want to do rendering. The specifications are these:



  • CPU: 2.5GHz Intel Core i7-4710HQ Processor (quad-core, 6M cache, up to 3.5GHz with Turbo Boost)
  • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M (2GB GDDR5 RAM); Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • RAM: 16GB DDR3L (2x 8GB at 1600MHz)
  • Storage: 1TB HDD (7,200 rpm)

Should I buy it and if I later start doing complex assemblies to purchase a new one or I will regret it?
