Computers have Intel Core 2 CPU, 6600 @ 2.4GHz, 3.25 GB of RAM.


We are currently running Solidworks with the 3G switch setting enabled.  Performance is good, though we often run up against the CPU limit and such.


Question is, what type of affect does streaming internet audio (Pandora, NPR, etc.) have on Solidworks performance?


Is it of the same affect as playing MP3s via a media player?


We are trying to decide if music should be allowed on the Solidworks machines.


Computer upgrades are in the near future, but in the meantime we need to determine performance effect on the machines.
