he uses Archicad. Archicad is 3D and requires a good graphics card. I would research what others are using and look at the Graphisoft website they are the company that makes Archicad.
I'm attending college this fall and I need help finding a laptop for architecture. Is a PC or MAC recommended? I need to it to run AutoCad Architecture, etc.. Someone is offering me an Apple MacBook Pro for $800 (2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo).. That's a good price so I sort of don't want to pass it up, but I'm not sure if that's the right laptop for architecture. I'll most likely be buying a Windows laptop, any suggestions?
