Good Laptop for Engineering?

  1. Aug 15, 2015 #1
    Hi all,

    What laptop would you recommend for a mechanical engineering student? I really like Mac but I hear that engineering software is almost all Windows.

    Are there any good engineering laptops for around $1,000 that you could recommend?

    What kinds of engineering software are you consdering?

    I know Matlab works on mac quite well and even the open source versions work too.

    To be honest I don't have a comprehensive list. I know I'll be using Solidworks, at least. This will be my first year coming up.
