After much argument at work as to why a Macbook is just as capable a machine to run Solidworks on, I finally have one on order.
I figured I would wait until the new Haswell chips were offered in the Macbooks. The expected boost to graphics performance, plus extended battery life should make my user experience seamless when transitioning from a 5 year old tricked out Dell desktop PC.
Based on price point, the Macbook Pro seemed to be a great machine to run Solidworks on. For the additional bit of weight, the added drive space and processor options should be much better suited to what SW requires. With Cook’s lack of presentation of an updated Macbook Pro at the WWDC conference this year though, it looks like a few more dollars for a Macbook Air will be the way to go.
I’ll elaborate a little more later on, but for now the focus is on just setting up the site!
