Re: CFX5.5 on laptop?
Of course it is possible. Just buy the fastest configuration (If possible: dual Pentium III or IV, 20 GB harddisk, 1 GB memory). Windows 2000 or Windows NT will do.

However, I would not recommend to use a laptop because calculations might take long (especially CFX 4.4). A laptop is usually used only for short periods (on travel) or for presentations. Not for massive calculations. Then you better buy several reliable Pentium IV! CFX 5 works perfectly in parallel on these machines.
