Has any tried installing and running SolidWorks on the Mac mini 2.0Ghz computer?
How was the performance?

I am looking to buy a Mac mini, but would like to be able to run SolidWorks once in a while. Thanks!

Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    SolidWorks works quite well on the Mac Mini, but the motherboard graphics are a bit weak for the big complex models I usually work on so I still use my dedicated XP machine for most of my SolidWorks tasks. I am planning on getting a new MacBook which I suspect should work great with its high power graphics system. The question that remains to be answered is how well will Parallels (which is supposed to have better OpenGL support ) or VMWare (which is supposed to have better DirectX support) work.
