RE: Vish and his IPAD2

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I'm just saying that using Revit requires a LOT of RAM. In a PC, you need 64bit OS to go over 3Gb and you definitely need more than 3Gb to do a real project with Revit. If you can use 8Gb on the Transformer or whatever it is, then that is fine.

My Transformer is WiFi-only.  I bought it and the keyboard dock online at NewEgg.  My unlimited phone contract is with Verizon Wireless and my phone is rooted.  I'm pretty adventurous for a old fart.


Revit is limited by the PC, not by the Transformer.  It runs on Android Honeycomb 3.1, not Windows.
