In a bit of a dilemma. I currently own a six year old MacBook which is running great, but since returning to school, I need to (rather soon) install Siemens NX. This is a program for 3D modeling and the like. Apparently my school doesn't have Mac licensing so I can't use it.
As a result, I'm looking at getting a cheap, reliable laptop that will essentially run NX. That's it. I couldn't find the file size for NX, but the instructions from my school say "Download the four (4) media files to a temporary location. WARNING: These are all VERY large: 1.5GB - 3.5GB each."
Two questions for everyone:
1) Would a computer like this work for running NX smoothly?
Lenovo Thinkpad X140e 20BL000BUS 11.6" AMD A4-5000 Quad Core 4GB 500GB Win7 Pro Best Student & Business Ultrabook Laptop
2) If not, do you have any suggestions as to what I should get that's under $300-400?
