hi @Kenneth that looks like a decent machine. Note the processor can ramp up to 3.6Ghz when it's underload which is good.
Just note that it takes very little power to run Solid Edge itself, what you need power for is dependant on the size and complexity of your models. This means that it's impossible to say how it will be in real life on your data without you trying it! But as I said, that looks like a decent machine either way.
specifications sounds better than many desktop computers I have seen in the last couple of years.
Maybe accept of the memory.
Here will an upgrade to 16GB or 32 GB be definitefely an enhancement.
On the other hand, depending on Your models, who knows wether the 8GB will be used completely.
just go to the download area of Solid Edge, where YOu also find the Maintenance Packs, and look for "Support Tools"
Here You will find the "PerformanceTool.exe".
Download, unpack and give it a try.
The results will be stored and can be shown.
Would be great to see them here, it always is good to knwo which ahrdware specs should be used for further equipement
It has been only 3 or 4 years since then but I was using a Pentium 4 machine with no special graphics card and 4 or 8 GB ram. Accessing files over the internet via Teamcenter because I was working from home at the time. Big models too. It wasn't that bad. I would think that laptop will be fine.
I'm running ST9 with;
Hewlett-Packard EliteBook 8770w
i7-3610QM CPU @2.30GHz
nVidia Quadro K3000M
Work perfectly for SE even with large assembly but the K3000M seems to overheat with Keyshot.
I'll run ST10 on a;
HP ZBook 17 G3
Xeon CPU E3-1575M v5 @ 3.00Ghz
nVidia Quadro M3000M
we'll see. ;-)
