I'm sure this topic receives plenty of attention so I'll just give it some more.
I plan on ordering a laptop workstation with these specs next week.
Has anyone worked with the M6500? Outside of the 4.0GB RAM & processor, (That's what I can afford.) am I missing anything?
I don"t get in to any major assemblies, (under 500 parts) and I don't do any FEA. Mostly sheet metal and small assemblies. I do however need to have the power available to make things happen on the fly when I visit customers. I am currently on SWX 2009 and won't be moving to 2010 for a few more months.
