Hey all I need some advice. I'll be starting school this fall and an going to need a new laptop. Want to be able to run solidworks smoothly on it. My current setup is an old dell latitude d630 with a core duo in it. It works but renderings take forever and if I get more that 5 parts open or am working on an assembly my movement gets jerky and skips a lot. I know this is due to lack of processor power, graphics processing and memory. I want as large a screen as possible and as much CPU and graphics as I can get. Any recommendations on specific models or specific components ( graphics cards ). Either plan to buy a premade system or was thinking of doing dells build your own service as to make sure i get the features I want. Currently my laptop doesn't support realview graphics so I'd really like the graphics card to support realview. Thanks everybody for your input.
