    Will Revit run on a laptop with an Intel HD 3000 graphics card?

    Will Revit 2012 (saving and working on revit projects/renders) run on a laptop with an intel HD 3000 graphics card, a NVIDIA Quadro FX 1800M, or a NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 630M?

    I'm looking to get a new laptop and found a Dell Inspiron with an intel i7 processor and an intel HD 3000 graphics card. I also came across a dell XPS with an intel i5 processor with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M graphics card, as well as a Dell Precision 4600 with an intel i7 processor and a NVIDIA Quadro FX 1800M graphics card. Which ones will run revit smoothly?

    My quick comments - someone else with more knowledge can correct me if I'm wrong.

    I don't believe you're going to want the machine with the i5 CPU. Revit is CPU intensive and this should be the top priority when deciding which computer to buy. While Revit may run with Intel integrated graphics cards, I wouldn't recommend that either. GPUs are not as important to Revit as CPUs but you're going to want a discrete graphics card vs. the integrated Intel graphics.
