    Buying a Laptop/Mac (2013) for Solidworks

    Dennis Goossens

      I'm an student in 'Mechanical Design and Productiontechnology'


      I bought a Asus K95V, but I do need to take it with me all the time, and it's an 18.2'.

      So I will be buying a new laptop/mac in the near future.

      I prefer the Macbook Pro (8GB) because of quality of the hardware.


      Here is my question:

      - Will programs like SolidWorks, AutoCAD, etc... run smooth on a Mac (with bootcamp windows)? (even for big assemblies?) Or am I much better of with a regular windows laptop

      If so are there any Windows laptops you recommend, that have a good build quality and work GREAT for SolidWorks?
