Hello, 

 

I'm finally replacing my old 2006 macbook pro with a new one, it still works tremendously but I ran out of hd, it only has 3gb ram and would like to run Revit through bootcamp but I'm a bit...confused with the specs. I know that ideally, I want a dedicated graphics card, 8gb of ram, 7200rpm hard drive (is that really necessary or is 5400 rpm enough?). However, all that on a macbook pro and on a student budget, well it'll be harsh. So I'm just going to post the specs for the ones I'm considering here and if you could please let me know which one would be sufficient to run revit. I know more is better but I'm trying to avoid that, if however it won't run on any of the other ones and just on the most expensive one then cool, just let me know and be honest.

 

I will NOT be using it for rendering, I already have a desktop in studio for that this would be for personal use and to run Revit, adobe products, rhino and all that jazz, when I'm away from my desktop tho it would be nice if you mentioned which ones can or can't render even though it's not really relevant for my purchase. Kay. 

 

MacBook pro 13" 

 

  • 2.4GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5
  • 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x4GB
  • 750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
  • Intel HD Graphics 3000

Macbook pro 13"

  • 2.8GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7
  • 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x4GB
  • 750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
  • Intel HD Graphics 3000

Macbook pro 15"

 

  • 2.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
  • 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x4GB
  • 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
  • MacBook Pro 15-inch Glossy Widescreen Display
  • Intel HD Graphics 3000 AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB GDDR5
  • Macbook pro 15"
  • 2.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
  • 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM — 2x4GB
  • 750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm (I just added the $750 at 7200 rpm for $135, worth it or not really?)
  • MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display (I added the Hi-res Antiglare Display for $135, is the hi-res antiglare really worth it?)
  • Intel HD Graphics 3000 AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB GDDR5

 

I do want to say something tho, I know and respect that a lot of people don't like macs and will probably think I'm stupid for choosing it but it's my choice. Respect it and move on Smile  Okay, now that that's out of the way thanks guys for any help you can provide!
