I find that many of my friend's are considering turning to Macintosh. Maybe the switch advs are working, or maybe my constant belittlement of their insuperiority has finally taken hold.. who knows. My point is, as engineers, most of them have the first question, "Can I run AutoCad?" As an engineer I use my office wintel and company laptop for that ****. at home i use my mac... but a lot of these guys are still students and dont have that "luxury." What cad do you guys run, or is it simply a combination of Virtual PC and Autocad? How well does it operate? For the record I despise the autodesk company. I was at a conference back in april and there were some reps there. we got on the topic of rendering on a mac versus pc and they were saying that "95% of all engineers use pcs" and they couldnt wrap their minds around the idea that they use pcs bbecause software is made ONLY for pcs. we dont use the pc out of preference we use it out of neccessity. we're being forced to use it because those ass clowns wont make software for the superior platform. anyways... any suggestions would be great! thanks!
