Title: Hardware : What to buy ?
Post by: peterboodts on November 17, 2016, 05:18:12 pm
I am considering buying Lumion pro.
I will need to buy a PC for it, using a Mac and think it's better to have a dedicated machine for it.
Any suggestions for what to buy ?
Let's say I have 1500 euro to spend.

Thanks !

Hi Peter, I agree - it's better to use a dedicated PC for Lumion as Macs often are too slow and expensive for demanding 3D applications such as Lumion.

1) To give you some local options, would you mind letting us know which country you live in?

2) Are the €1500 only earmarked for the PC (not for the monitor, keyboard and mouse)?
