So. I'm going to college for architecture this coming fall, but the school advises to wait until the second year of the architecture program to ensure that we get a laptop with the right system requirements. I've done some research on programs like AutoCAD and Revit (if you're at all familiar) and have noticed that their system requirements for the 2009 versions easily meet the MacBook Pro's specs. My questions are... Would programs like AutoCAD and Revit increase their system requirements beyond the capacity of the current MacBook Pro in the next 18 months? And... should I get the MacBook Pro now because chances are it'll be able to run the 2010 or 2011 versions of the architecture software? Or do I wait for 18 months (no matter how irresistibly difficult it will be)? Any kind of input/information/answers would be AWESOME. Thanks!
