Macbook pro performance with Archicad.
Would macbook pro 13.3 work well with programs like Archicad (or other cad systems that use 3d rendering and design)? I wanted to know this because I'm really sceptic about its graphics card Intel HD 4000, which is not recommended by for use in cad systems.

From Graphisoft's "Mac Specific Recommendations" for Archicad:
For the best performance choose Mac computers with dedicated graphics cards. Integrated Intel HD 3000, 4000 cards work with ArchiCAD, but their performance is limited.My interpretation of this is that Graphisoft is telling you, "Hey, it'll work on the 13" MBP, but we wouldn't use it on anything less than a 15" MBP."
Graphisoft's system requirements for Archicad 16:
Multicore processor is recommended to exploit ArchiCAD 16 performance capabilities. Read more about multiprocessing.This suggests to me that you will get much better performance with the quad-core i7 CPU found in the 15" MBP's, over the dual-core i7 top-of-the-line 13" MBP.

Yep, that's how I understood it too. It's interesting. If it actually works and I could do small to medium projects that would be fine with me.
Just thought maybe somebody had actual experience using MBP 13.3 and hd 4000.
Thanks for your help anyways!
