Need something for traveling. Should be less than 1" thin and pretty light with good battery life. Doesn't have to run SW the fastest, just has to be fairly usable. Windows 7. Suggesions?
"Fairly useable" is a wide target. It depends on the type of files/assemblies you intend to create. SW will run on a wide variety of machines but there are no guarantees of success unless you follow the recommendations on the SW Hardware requirements site.
I know quite a few people who love the SurfacePro2 (or 3).
Beyond that, and as Jeff mentioned, find something that follows the recommendations here: SOLIDWORKS System Requirements | Windows and Mac | SOLIDWORKS
