I'm an architectural design instructor and have 45 stations that we will be replacing next school year.
We are using AutoCAD 2013; AutoDesk Inventor; 3D Studio Max and assorted Microsoft Office programs as well as Adobe products.
Current machine specs:
Dell Optiplex 780
Windows 7 Professional
Service Pack 1
Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU
RAM 8 GB
64-bit operating System
ATI Radeon HD 3450 video card
These machines are bogging down. We're married to Dell. Anything I need to know or avoid when spec'ing the machines?
Intel Core 2 duo CPUs are great for light duty, and that may be your current reason for slow performance: which ones did you get stuck with?
