I'm looking to buy a new laptop for college where I'm studying mechanical engineering. The laptop I'm looking at is the Asus TP300LA with the Intel core i5-4210u processor and with 6GB of RAM. Is this sufficient for 2D and 3D drawings in Autocad 2015? I have researched this already but being fairly new to the technical side of computers I figured I'd get an educated opinion. Sorry if I've posted in the wrong section, it's just that I need to know ASAP. Thanks in advance for any replies.

I don't know autocad very well and i don't know it's specifications but i run blender (a 3d rendering program) quite fine on a comparatively low performance modern laptop and an ancient xp desktop, i suspect autocad will run fine on most modern computers but i can't be sure. I would suggest that autodesk (thye are still the developers of autocad aren't they?) will have a "minimum specifications" section on their website for each and every program they sell. If you can't find it your best bet might be to use an online form of some sort at autodesk's site to ask what the recommended specifiactions are for autocad 2015, i doubt they will be too high for it to work, but more powerful computers might well make the experience of using it more fluid. If you find it runs on whatever laptop you end with but that it is slow try turning off shadow effects(i think it will produce them , most 3d applications do), that will speed things up a lot.

Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
