Training Laptops


Training Laptops

I have a coworker that we bought a subscription to PTC Univerisity, he wants to be able to do some training at home. IT indicated that they just got a few Lenovo W510's. I know I can just try them but was hoping to get your thoughts on the minimum requirements for a training laptop?

I'm sure the model files that are used during the training are not very complex. Will the following Lenovo W510 Laptop be suitable for his training needs? The specs are listed below.

Thanks in advance,

In my opinion and based on PTCU classes I have taken this PC will do a nice job. The models in the training are typically very basic and the assemblies are small. Should do a nice job.
