Looking at a laptop that will occasionally run AutoCAD. Dell XPS 15: i7-2720QM, 8GB DDR3, WIndows 7 64-bit. The graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce 540M.
Ordinarily I'd go with a Quadro card but we don't want to spend the money for a workstation-class machine.
Is anyone using this card? If so what kind of stability/performance are you getting?
There seem to be lots of people having issues with the GT540m. In fact, I worked with a client this week who is struggling with the 540m and AutoCAD '12. I've never used this card, but I would say, buyers beware.
