Hi all,


I'm about to buy an new Macbook pro for study next year. Next year I go study mechanical engineering, where I have to use solidworks a lot. Is here anybody who have some experience with solidworks on a mac who can advise me which Macbook pro I have to buy.

I doubt between the 13 inch, with a 2,7 Ghz dualcore processor and only 1 GPU, the Intel HD Graphics 3000; the 15 inch, with a 2,0 Ghz quadcore processor and an extra GPU, the AMD Radeon HD 6490M with 256 MB GDDR5; or even the 15 inch 2,2 Ghz quadcore with a AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1 GB GDDR5.


Is the 15 inch macbook pro worth it's higher price. Maybe some can say something about the realview possibilty in solidworks.


Thanks in advance!
