patrick is on a distinguished road
I'm using ANSYS WB 12 for CFX and Fluent calculation. I've low-end notebook Thinkpad T60 T7200 (2.0GHz) + 3 GB RAM + ATI X1400 and I'm thinking about upgrading to mobile workstation. Because of mobility requirement I cannot buy desktop PC.
My question is what are decent specs of notebook capable for geometry/meshing, simple calculation and post processing (I will use our Uni cluster for running serious calculation). Is graphic card so important for meshing and post?
I'm considering Thinkpad W500 + T9900 (3.06 GHz) + ATI Mobility FireGL V5700 (512MB VRAM) + 8 GB RAM + VISTA x64.
What are the specs of your notebook? Is it enough?
