I'm using an acer laptop with the following specs:

Intel Celeron 1.6ghz (533fsb)

1 gig ddr2 (pc 667)

built in intel graphics with 224mb shared memory. (I'm using revit architecture 2009)

 

Does video card really affect rendering quality? I'm doubting if I can produce better renderings if I upgrade to a higher spec'd laptop with a dedicated video card. I've read some articles saying  video card DOES NOT have a direct effect on rendering quality.

Holy crap!!! You need an upgrade my friend, that thing should be in the Smithsonian.

Rendering is all processor dependant and a 1.6 ghz 533 mhz fsb doesnt come close to what Autodesk recommends for Revit.

I really want an upgrade but I don't have enough dough right now... I can still live with the long rendering times of my laptop.

 btw,  what laptops can you suggest for an upgrade.  Is the macbook pro good enough for extra fast rendering?

Quality is not effected by your system specs, just the rendering time....  I'm actually surprised revit 2009 starts on that computer Smile
