I am going to be doing EE at university this year and i am looking at purchasing a laptop to use. So the question is...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What sort of machine specs do you need to run Mathematica and Matlab quickly?

---

I am looking at a Toshiba Tecra A10 (PTSB0A-00E001)

Intel core 2 duo T9400 (2.53 Ghz, 1066MHz FSB, 6MB L2 Cache) GM45 Express Chipset

2 Gb DDR2 800 (up to 4 GB supported)

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator GM45 up to 128 Mb shared memory

250 Gb 5400 rpm SATA HDD

15.4" WSXGA+ (1680x1050)

The main thing i need to know about is if there is the need for a graphics card with dedicated graphics memory or if this on board graphics will suffice for the purposes of Mathematica and Matlab.

thank you in advance.
