thanks in advance, as always!
Here is link to benchmarks that were run using SolidWorks 2011 Rx. You can narrow the list down to laptops to see which ones are best.
Well, from what I can tell the 720 is faster. Tough to say. the i7 definitely wins for drawings and rendering. probably pretty close for general modeling. So I'd pick the 720.
Note that it is quad core. I have to run... I would check the power usage for each.
i opted for the 720 quad core w/12 GB ram. will run the speed test on both laptops for comparison and post results.
