I am looking to replace my old M60 dual core dell laptop and run autocad inventor on it. I changed jobs and I now have to buy it myself. I am OK with slower speed but I do not want it to crash. Is i5 processor with 4gb ram capabile of running inventor?
It's definitely capable but stay away from Intel Graphics because they're horrible. I'd actually recommend this laptop for its CPU and GPU capabilities: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
This will do all you want it to. The Mobility Radeon HD 5730 is a really nice mobile GPU which is important with AutoCad. The price being under $800 is an added bonus since you have to buy it yourself. There's also no way that a Phenom II X4 CPU will crash from AutoCad inventor.
