NX - laptop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, and first of all, sorry for my english, I'm not a native.

I'm going to change my laptop and I would really appreciate a piece of advice.

It's for using NX with very basic geometries, (learning purposes). For what I'm searching for a low brand laptop, if i'm in need of a monster in the future I would choose a deskpot computer. This one, I'm going to move it around a lot for a good period of time, with the crash risk associated. Also, the usage of this program on this computer will be something temporal.

Now I'm using this laptop:

i3 M330 2.13 Ghz
4Gb RAM
ATI mobility radeon HD 5145 (512 MB dedicated + 1722MB shared)
win7 64bits

It gets the job done with a more than adequate velocity, until now (have only used finite elements once, apart from that only modeling and assemblies). Sometimes it stops respondings but not a big deal, ctrl+alt+del and reopen, It's not that frequent (It only happens when doing sketches, I still don't understand that).

The one I was thinking about is:

Intel Core i7-3632QM 2.2 Ghz
8Gb RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4000 (1.7 GB)
win8 64bits

I'm a little worried about the GPU being integrated, I've heard that the HD 4000 it's kind of good for be onboard ("teorically" sighly better than the 5145), even siemens says that it's enought for solid edge and as far as I know this kind of programs use more CPU than GPU. So, as long as i don't ask for anything overly complicated.....But still... The integrated have a very bad reputation...

What would you recomend me?, Thats enought?, it is not?, How well/bad it would run the program?, which modules do you think that will present more problems?

By the way, I'm not interested on the gaming features or requeriments.

Thank you all !!!.

I have that very processor in my computer and I disabled my dedicated graphics for a little test run.
Even on battery power, NX runs great, with a smooth framerate while spinning around my 40-something sketches and extrudes part. I don't think you will have any problems.
