Apple Macbook Air 2020

BogdanBogdan Member Posts: 9
Since all the physical stores are now closed, with few exceptions, I am not able to run the OnShape system check, on the laptop that I'm intresed to buy.
Is there anybody willing to post here a print screen of the system check page on the newly lanuched Apple Macbook Air 2020?

    @Bogdan It should run Onshape fine for small assemblies.  The Macbook Air does not have a professional level graphics chipset like the Macbook Pro does.  But it will work.

    Thank you for your reply @mlaflecheCAD. I have a desktop, with an Intel Xeon CPU and Nvidia Quadro P620 graphics card. I noticed that this configuration is more than enough for my needs and for the small assemblies that, not very often, I design. I could compromise some of the processing power, for the mobility and other advantages, that a Macbook Air would provide.
    The OnShape performace check on a desktop with an Intel UHD 620 GPU resulted in scores of 110/50 million triangles/lines per second. If the Intel Iris Plus, in the latest macbooks, is able to match that, I would be happy with it.

    I'm sure you will hit those numbers no problem. 

    That looks about what I have seen on a bunch of low end chromebooks and macbooks when in best buy. 

    Anything with integrated graphics will not be much better than what you have already. 

    If performance is a concern. Even a low end descrete card should be at least 8 to 10 times better than the best intel integrated graphics
