Please find below a list from the Metabox and Dell brands, our recommendation is to get a Quadro graphics card if budget allows.
The Metabox range of laptops that are highly customisable and offer the Quadro graphics card as well (Adam one of our techs has a Prime laptop that’s about 4 years old now)
Here are links to the Dell XPS and Dell Precision (CAD workstation laptop with Quadro graphics card)
(Note: There is a possibility to get a decent discount on the precision model when you buy more than one under a business account over the phone as the price on the website is very high.)
TopSolid and Apple Mac's
TopSolid can only be installed on Microsoft Windows Operating Systems.
TopSolid will run on any Mac which has an Intel based chip via Mac's Boot Camp software which allows you to install Microsoft Windows Operating Systems alongside the Mac operating system. The following link outlines all you need to know to install Microsoft Windows.
Will TopSolid run on a Mac using Fusion, Parallels, VMWare or VirtualBox software (virtualisation software) running Microsoft Windows Operating System?
TopSolid will run however you will find that it will not have the same performance as it would running directly in Microsoft Windows via Boot Camp.
As the virtualisation software is running the Microsoft Windows software on top of the Mac Operating System there are a many resources been used by the Mac Operating System which will degrade the performance of applications such as TopSolid which requires a high level of dedicated CPU & graphics processing.
We are unable to provide any technical support for 3rd party applications such as Fusion, Parallels or VMWare.
For these reasons we do not recommend running TopSolid via a virtualisation software.
