    Hi,

    My brother is going to be using 3d studio max a lot this year for his uni course.

    He currently has a 13" MBP, 2.26ghz model. He says it won't run 3dsmax when he's booted into windows 7 (bootcamp). His mate has a 15" model and it runs 3dsmax fine.

    I'm guessing it's the graphics card. I'm thinking about getting him the latest version of the mini with the 320m graphics card. Would this run the software ok as it seems the nvidia 9400m card he has at the moment isn't good enough.

    I know nothing about gfx cards so any info is appreciated.

    I run it fine, only thing I have upgraded was the RAM, from 2GB to 4GB.
