    Has anyone tried using Solidworks on an Intel Mac? Or on a non-Intel for that matter? My son is currently running it on his Dell but wants to purchase a MacBook Pro by fall.

    It will run fine. When you're running Windows on a Mac, it's just like Windows on any other machine. On a non-Intel machine, it will run very slowly in VPC, or perhaps not at all. It's only worth talking about if you're planning to use it in Windows with Bootcamp (and possibly Parallels, although IIRC, SolidWorks requires 3D support).
