Hey guys, I'm an Industrial Design major and need to get a new laptop for school. The school recommends that I get a Dell M6400, which at $3000 and 9 lbs, it's not really what I want. From what I understand, the sole reason that this particular laptop was chosen by the school is that it has the Nvidia Quadro video card, which is one of the few that is 100% compatible with running Solidworks. Now, I've been a Mac user for many years (typing this from my much loved 12" Powerbook G4). I really want one of those shiny new Macbook Pro's. Has anyone successfully been running Solidworks on a Macbook Pro? Besides running Bootcamp and Vista, what is involved? Are there any drawbacks to using it on a Mac? Do you encounter any problems not using an "approved" graphics card? Also, I'm debating between the 13" and the 15" MBP. Because of size and price, I think I'd prefer the 13". BUT, the 13" has only the NVidia Geforce 9400M, while the 15" has the Nvidia GeForce 9400M + 9600M GT with 256MB. Will the more powerful graphics be something that I truly notice, that is truly worth getting? Will it help running Solidworks? Any other Quadro-equipped PC's I should be looking at, besides the Dell? Thanks!
