I am a new revit mep user and am hoping to run the program on my 4 year old laptop. I have a Dell Latitude D800 with 1G of memory/ windows xp, I am not sure what graphics card I have, But I ordered it to work on Archi-cad on it a few years ago and have had no problems. Do you guys think I can use this computer practically for renderings,etc. Should I update to 2G of memory? or should I buy a new laptop

 Ps. If I do choose to invest in a new laptop, any suggestions on a good economical basic duel-core which could be updated for several years (i prefer not to get another dell)

 

thanks!

I run RA2008 on my old 2002 Model Toshiba Laptop with 2.14GHz Celleron and 700someodd megs of ram and a 16mb integrated video card.  Works fine.  Renders slow (I usually open the file on my media center setup to render projects).  I don't see you haveing any problems.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

I really wish they would fix the edit system...

to you pS: I would recommend Toshiba or IBM.  I have been nothing but impressed with my Satellite and have always been awed by IBMs power and capabilities (I could just be biased as my dad has worked for IBM for quite some time an always has a thinkpad on his lap.  Of course, on the graphics side, I run RA2008 on my wife's Macbook Pro on a regular basis and I have to admit it runs better on the Mac than any PC I've ever ran it on (excepting my new office machine).  However, if your definition of economical is not spending a load of money, then this is NOT the route you want to go.

 

Best of luck and hope this helps!
