The cost of your computer hardware is small compared to the cost of the software you will be running on it or the aggravation of waiting for the computer to catch up with you.
Don’t try and save money on your hardware – you will regret it later.
Purchase the newest, fastest computer you can afford.
Try to avoid buying packaged computers from discount retailers that come with a lot of features to help you surf the internet, play computer games or other recreational computer activities but have low overall performance.
If you are unfamiliar with computer configurations, ask for an industry standard commercial quality computer to use in your business. Tell your computer supplier you are going to be using the computer for CAD based applications so that he can make appropriate recommendations.
Vero products are 32-bit Microsoft Windows applications and were written for the Intel Pentium family of processors. Use anything other than genuine 32-bit Intel Pentium processors may result in the haphazard performance of Vero products and in some cases may result in poor performance or features not working. Intel Celeron CPU’s generally run slower than non-Celeron CPU’s as they have no internal cache.
Please note, Vero products are supported and tested on 64-bit systems. However, Cabnetware is still a 32-bit application and because of this it does not take full advantage of a 64-bit Operating system.
