I am currently using Bobcad v23 /Bobart v23. I have just purchased 2 laptops. One for me and one for the wife. I am trying to decide which one I want. This is not the shop computer that runs my machine, just a laptop for me to design things on when I,m not in the shop.
Laptop #1 is an Acer 5515 with an AMD single core processor(1.6 ghz)with 3gb of ram,
Laptop #2 is a Compaq cq60-214dx with an intel dual core processor (2.16 ghz) with 2 gb of ram
Both have graphics cards that support open GL.
Which would be better for this cad software?
Personally, from past experience, I prefer AMD over Intel, (intel processors should come with a helmet due to the frequent crashes) but will the extra gig of ram make up for the slower single core processor, or does the single core to dual core difference not matter in this case? I don't know if Bobcad is a multithreaded application or not.
Thanks very much for any advice, Jeff
