  • Operating system - Windows 7 Professional 64 (available through downgrade rights from Windows 8 Pro)
  • Processor - Intel Core i5-3230M with Intel HD Graphics 4000 (2.6 GHz, 3 MB cache, 2 cores)
OS: Windows 7 is considered one of the strongest and most stable operating systems. It has the most support and is compatible with the most programs. Most, if not all, required programs for use in class, such as Solidworks, will be compatible.
Durable: This is a thick, heavy laptop, similar in style to the popular Thinkpad series by Lenovo. With an all-aluminum shell, this computer can handle a few dings and can dissipate heat better.
Security: As an added security measure, this laptop comes with a fingerprint scanner. Coupled with a password at boot, this computer can be made impenetrable by anyone other than you, keeping all your files safe.
RAM: While it comes with a modest 4 gigs of RAM, this laptop can handle incremental memory upgrades if necessary – up to 16 gigs. This is a great way to increase the performance of design or drafting programs in the event of crashes.
Graphics: The graphics processing for this laptop is handled by the CPU, which is underpowered and prone to overheating. It will work with standard rendering programs like AutoCAD, but may experience some performance issues.
Memory: With only 4 gigs of RAM, this model will run complex programs slowly, and may be prone to crashing. This can be easily fixed with a RAM upgrade, and may even be covered by an extended warranty.
