Sory cuz my English.
Any help is appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What is your OS? 32 bit or 64 bit
i recommand 64 bit with minimum 6 GB ram
and your HD is to slow try to change it with SSD 256 GB or minimum 7200 rpm
Thank you for replying.
I only can upgrade to 6G with ram.the HDD can not be changed.Asus k55dr has no 7200rpm HDD or SSD.
How about graphic? AMD Radeon® Mobility™ HD7640G + HD 7470M Dual Graphics with 1GB DDR3 VRAM.
Sr my English
for your HD you can purchase one and create a copy of the original HD.
I've g74sx and i've installed two SSD
for the all other stuf it's enough for your works
honestly don't think it would be suitable to work on anything more than a couple small parts.
2GB ram is way too little, as others have said.
But the real killer is the screen - according to Asus's website: http://www.asus.com/Notebooks/Versatile_Performanc
The display is "15.6" 16:9 HD (1366x768) LED Backlight" - so only 768 pixels tall. You really need a 1080 or more screen to work with Inventor - 768 leaves such a small viewing area it's questionable how much work can be done. Not to mention some of Inventor's menus are taller than 768 so you won't be able to see the OK or Cancel buttons to click on them...
as for the graphics card..
the "Radeon HD 7640G + 7470M Dual" scores a pretty bad 526, so it may well struggle with more than a couple parts anyway... Honestly would doubt how well it would handle assemblies of about 300 parts (assuming they're not all simple square extrusions). It will probably work and display something, but you'll soon be banging your head against a wall with how slow everything is.
hi, sam_m.thank you fo replying.
I have a desktop with 1366x768 resolution and can see full tabs.why?
I'll upgrade to 6G ram.
According to benchmarks.Radeon HD 7640G + 7470M Dual scores 526 and individual Radeon HD 7640G scores 526 too.what is happening with dual graphics,is there no effect?
in the past laptop users have complained that some option boxes are too large for the screen and they are unable to see some of the buttons. The System Requirements: http://usa.autodesk.com/autodesk-inventor/system-r
If the dual Radeon cards work like the dual Nvidia Optimus system then the 2 graphics cards do not work together. 1 is a more powerful gpu for 3d work (and games) and the other is a lower-power 2d card for simple web-browsing or playing videos etc. that won't drain the battery as much. So any benchmark will only test 1 card at any time, usually the high powered 3d card, which is why the result is the same.
Thank you so so much Sam.
Perhaps asus k55dr is not good selection.
I am student and have short budget.
I'll get Laptop Acer Aspire V3 571G.how do you think?
CPU: Intel® Core™ i5 3210M, 2.50GHz
