System requirement for Creo 4

I am planning to buy a new laptop which will be my workstation while working with the Creo 4. The projects I work on are not very complex and big. On the PTC website I have found a pdf file called Hardware Note-Creo 4 with system specifications recommended for Creo 4. The recommended memory according to the document is 4 GB. However, the GPO solution the support center for Creo in my country has advised me to order a computer with minimum memory capacity of 16 GB. 

Now I doubt about the information on PTC Hardwar Note- Creo 4 and I am wondering which exact system requirements I should go for. Since upgrading the laptop is not as easy as a desktop, I would prefer to order a laptop which would work for couple of years with Creo without any problem. 

 

Could you plz help me to collect the right system requirements?

The PTC recommended 4GB is the absolute minimum!!!

We had a user running Creo2 on his 4GB machine and it was unbearably slow.

Changed him to a 8GB machine and he can now get his work done.

If you want a laptop to last a few years, I would go with nothing less than 16GB.

Remember the PTC published spec list is a MINIMUM!!!!

 

My specs for a laptop:

17" screen with high resolution

NVIDIA graphics chip in the Quadro family, not GeForce

3.0+gHz processor speed, I prefer Intel Xeon chips over the i-series

16GB ram minimum

256GB SSD for the main drive

1TB drive for data files/storage

Windows 10 OS

CPU should be as fast as possible on single thread performance.

 > 3.0+gHz processor speed, I prefer Intel Xeon chips over the i-series

why Xeon?

Larger L3 Cache

Support for ECC memory

Designed to support heavier workloads

Multi-core chips

but for single Creo workstations?

Multi-core has no performance advantage for Creo - Quad-Core is the best you can get.

Heavier Workloads, for Simulate maybe.

L3 Cache - haven't found a possibility to benchmark this.

ECC - there are different opinions about ECC.

All valid arguments, I was stating my preferences. As to the original posting, the specs listed by PTC need to be taken as absolute minimum.

If it is not a dedicated Creo laptop, then other chips may be a better option depending on your actual work mix.
