I have a Gateway T-6836 Laptop with a Centrino Core 2 Due @ 2 GHZ, 4 GB RAM, and the Mobile Intel 965 Chipset for video.
The laptop has Vista home installed on it right now. So, I will need to upgrade to Vista Ultimate in order to run/test SolidWorks 2009. Do I spent the $200+ to upgrade the Vista and use this hardware, or do I put that money to a new laptop?
It doesn't have to be lighting fast, but it does need to work properly and not have any issues because of the hardware.
Thanks for any advice.
What would you do?
