Advice required - Compatibility with Macbook Pro 16

Recommended Posts

I was hoping that a could get confirmation that Vectorworks Landmark works fine with a Macbook Pro 16. Preferably by someone who has used it. From what I can find it does indeed seem to be compatible but I have come across a few posts and people who have had some trouble. My not so computer savvy sister asked for advice about it, she is going to buy Vectorworks and the laptop for work so I just need to be sure it works.


The macbook is this one. There are 2 configs. They are high spec and have dedicated graphics with 4gb memory.



Macbook Pro listed on this compatibility page



The version she would be purchasing for the landscape design.



Also, bit off-topic but I might as well ask now. I was told there was a Vectorworks version that dealt with garden design. I looked around and found a few articles about residential garden design version. Is this now defunct? 


Anyway, good advice much appreciated. Thank you.

I bought mine in January, used it heavily with very detailed building models in VW Architect, everything works smoothly although often with fans on for cooling. Specs: Intel Corei7 6-core 2,6 GHz, 16GB RAM, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8GB, SSD

I agree. I run the 16-inch i9 and it runs VW very smoothly. If you need portable, the 16-inch is definitely the way to go.

I have 16" i9 MBP and Architect 2020 and it runs great, the only limitation is the graphics card, rendering time could be better with a better card.  But unless you Mac Pro or iMac pro  this is the best choice.
