  1. my guess is that you're getting a Dell then. If you are going to have to use it for the next for to five years get it Loaded. 6 to 8GB Ram, fastest and most cores you can get for a processor, and as much additional video processing as you can get. I don't remember the current manufacturers for video cards but I thought I had seen that one works better than the others. Sorry you are stuck with a pc I have found that even a mid grade Mac will outperform most pcs when it come to Vectorworks and other graphic programs like photoshop. I don't know if this is completely accurate but my experience has been that the faster processor will help you more to draw your projects more speedily, but more cores will help you cut down rendering times. Hope this helps. anyone else agree or disagree?
  2. I realize there have been many hardware discussions but haven't seen this particular thread. I am currently running VW 2009 on a Mac Pro with a 2.66 GHz Quad-core Intel Xeon and 6GB ram. It is a newer machine and runs well. I am considering the portability issue though and am contemplating a MacBook Pro with a 3GHz duo core and 4 or 8 GB ram. Has anyone seen the performance on these two machines and able to make a comparison? I am thinking that the faster processor on the macbook may make up for the 2 less cores. Any thoughts or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
