I plan on buying a laptop this weekend and need some advice on what to get. The only heavy program that I will be running is Pro/Engineer 5.0 Schools Edition. What specs are required for my laptop to run this program efficiently(RAM, processor, etc.)? Does anyone have any experience with running this program on a notebook? Thanks for any help.

I have only used the full blown versions. In this case the graphics card and accelerator is the weak link.

Why do you want a laptop if your goal is to run Pro/E? The problem is that now you are constrained to needing an actual graphics card, which is going to destroy your battery life. The best GPU to have is a workstation graphics card like a Quadro. I don't know if they make those for laptops though.

We have been using SW through an external license. We had a special graphics cards, and 6 or 8 GB (the more the better) RAM installed. Get at least a duo core processor 2.4 GHz or better.

See requirements here:

Boo to Dell. If you MUST get a notebook, get Lenovo.
