ANYONE having SUCCESS with using SOLIDWORKS on an iMAC?

 

Hi, I am an Aussie CAD/Solidworks teacher looking to upgrade -  initially  Dell Precision M6500 but totally turned off buy the price on Dell .au sight ($4,199 compared to Dell US sight $1699) Our dollar is par with $US and thats a $2500 discrepency!

 

Now I'm looking at purchasing an iMAC using BootCamp to run windows for Solidworks.  I understand this WILL work but NOT allow me to run RealView Graphics - renders fine though from what I've read.

 

I understand the Mac Pro has a SW-certified graphics card? (Quadro FX4500) - this may be an option for me.
