I’m pretty new to Blender though I’ve been experimenting and teaching myself a bit.
I’m a MAC dude and beyond that, a “portable”/laptop dude… I’ve been working on my Macbook Pro with quad i7, 2.4 Ghz, 4 GB Ram, and AMD Radeon HD 6770M, Intel HD Graphics 3000… not sure why the computer specs lists both.
So… I know from experience and talking to someone a year ago that my graphics cards aren’t good enough for cycles. I’m looking to get a new laptop (MAC) so my question is which have the necessary graphics chips and power to run Blender well?
Macbook Air – Intel HD Graphics 5000, dual core i7
Macbook Pro – Intel Iris Graphics
Macbook Pro — Intel Iris Pro
Macbook Pro — Intel Iris Pro, NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M with 2GB GDDR5 memory.
Those are the options I see at the Apple Store online for laptops.
Is there ANY way the Macbook Air would run Blender effectively? Which of the above options would work?
Thanks in advance!!!
