    Just curious if anyone has tried any CAD programs yet. I'm specifically interested in AutoCAD and Pro/Engineer. From everything I've heard, it sounds like they will run just fine, but I'd like to here from somebody who has tried it.

    Update: So, so far Solidworks runs well.

    Anything else?

    Well with BootCamp you will be able to run these programs directly under Windows XP on your Mac.

    I'm not too worried about Autocad - I've never had speed issues with that program. Now I am interested in seeing how 3ds viz runs in XP on a Mac.

    Wouldn't mind knowing how good CATIA runs on Mac hardware.

    My friend just installed SolidWorks on a demo 20" iMac at my work. He ran some stress tests on some parts he is working on. He was VERY happy with the results.

    I might make the jump if Surpac, vulcan, Datamine among others works well.
