I have had severe delay problems with sketchup pro 8 on my last 2 computers.
The last computer I had met the minimum requirements for sketchup pro 8, but I was waiting between 3 and 5 minutes for scenes to switch.
I purchased an HP laptop that meets (exceeds in some areas) the recommended requirements.
HP ProBook 450 G1
2.2 Ghz Processor
Independent Video Card (2GB RAM)
8 RAM with expandable to 32
The situation has improved but I am still waiting over a minute for the scenes to switch.
Does the RAM have any effect on this?
Any other ideas?
