    Default Laptop for Civil 3D

    Hi, im looking at getting an affordable laptop to run Civil 3D, without crashing on me. Looked at a laptop with the following specs :
    Dell Vostro 3750
    Processor : Intel Core i7-2670QM 2.20Ghz
    Display : 17.3in High Definition LED Display (1600X900) with anti-glare
    Palmrest : Fingerprint Reader Biometric
    Camera : Integrated 2.0 Mega Pixel Camera
    Memory : 4096MB (1x4096) 1333MHz DDR3 Dual Channel
    Hard Drive : 750GB Serial ATA (7.200 Rpm)
    Optical Drive : 8X DVD+/-RW Drive
    Power Supply : Inspiron 130W AC Adapter
    Battery : Primary 6-cell 48W/HR LI-ION
    Graphics : NVIDIA Geforce GT 525M with 1GB VRAM
    Wireless : South African Intel WiFi 1030 802.11 b/g/n/BT3.0 Combo
    Keyboard : Internal US/International Qwerty Keyboard
    Operating System : English Genuine Windows 7 SP1 Professional (64 BIT) with Recovery DVD
    3Yr Basic Warranty .

    Do you guys think this will be acceptable? Sure I can get an extra 4GB of ram cheap-cheap to add to it.
    Is there anything in a similar price class you can reccomend?

    For Civil 3D go for 16 Gig of RAM.
    4 Gig is good for word processing.
