I am not a heavy Solidworks user and therefore dont want to go down the route of a workstation as portability is key!
Yes it will run OK, as long as you're not running massive assemblies. You just won't get Real View Graphics. Make sure to get atleast a Core i5 and 16GB of memory if possible.
They graphics card won't be supported by Solidworks but it will work fine. I use a gaming card on my home PC and it works fine.
My answer would be that it "may" work ok. This has to be qualified by what your type of usage (surfaces, renders or simple shapes) will be. As we all know, even qualified systems can still have problems but the frequency will be less. Also, when you have a problem with a non-qualified system, you may not get the same level of help from a SW VAR. Other factors will be the RAM, HD size/type and operating System. SW2015 also requires 64-bit operating system and asks for the at least the Pro version of Win 7, 8 or 8.1 - "Home" versions are not recommended. Good luck!
Thanks to all for the help, much appreciated!
