Opinions on New Computer for Solidworks Standard Edition

Question asked by Tyler Neff on Jun 29, 2013
Latest reply on Jul 3, 2013 by Charles Culp

Have about $1,500 for a budget and need to purchase a new computer for the newest version of Solidworks Standard Edition. Can't build it (which I'd love to). Thought this system would do. This is for a business, not personal.


Thanks for your opinions!
