I am a macbook pro user. I currently use a 2012 Macbook Pro 2.3 ghz Intel Core i7 with 8gb 1600mhz ddr3 ram and a nvidia GeForce GT 650M 1024 mb graphics card.
I use the Manipulate function in Mathematica to show lots of 3D visuals in my class. I would like to know what I should be looking for in a new MacBook Pro to make mathematica render the Manipulate function on 3d object faster.
Apple has a few options on their top end MacBook Pros but I don't want to over pay for something I don't need as the cost difference is significant. I want to get the best machine for rendering graphics. Specifically using the Manipulate function on 3d Graphics while minimizing jumpiness.
Which is most important? Ram? Ghz? Graphics? Or all 3? Which gets me the most bang for my buck? Thanks in advance!
