I've been asked what we absolutely need in a laptop to run Pro|E on a regular basis.
In the past we've been buying Dell workstation class laptops, but because of the price they try to stretch 4-5 years out of them. For a desktop, that's not bad, but the abuse a laptop takes being hauled around, that's stretching it. We're wondering if there's a lower priced laptop that would perform well and allow us to replace them more often.
Anyway, I know I need a Quadro series graphics card at minimum. I'd also say a high resolution screen, no smaller than 15.4" and no less than 1,200 pixels wide. I'd also prefer higher clock speed with fewer cores over a lower clock speed with more cores and I seem to remember that the L2 cache is important to Pro|E.
Anything else? Do I have any of that wrong? Any specific models that you'd recommend? Any good graphics cards besides the NVidias?
