View Full Version : Minimum hardware requirements
31st Mar 2009, 04:15 pm
I'm looking to purchase a laptop to run AutoCAD 09. What would be the minimum memory size and what chip would work the best at a decent price. I would like to get a Dell but am open to others. Not able to spend allot and looking for some opinions.

Hi, the best way to answer your question is to refer you to autodesks page where they have 09 listed and have a look at what they recommend, and base that into the specs when looking at a laptop.
search for it on the forum this kind of question has been asked alot with all sorts laptops, mac etc

Do not get one with an Intel video card.
Core 2 Duo cpus are better than AMD turin cpus for dedicated CAD work.
Dell has the Vostro 2510 on sale for $699
Intel Core2Duo 1.8 Ghz
3 gb ram
256mb nVidia GF8400 GS video card
Not great but good for $700. I would spend more but not a bad start.
