    You're not doing anything but playing Solitaire if you don't have a good video card.

    For $240, what have you got to lose?
    Good cad/cam laptops are much much more expensive than that.
    128 SSD is easily swapped out (if you need more space).

    It'd have a firepro or quadro k1000m/k2000m, not the best, but not terrible..

    I used to have one for a work-supplied laptop. It was decent for the time. I used it with Solidworks. I preferred the Dell to the Thinkpad I'm currently using. The battery life wasn't great when it was new. I would plan on a machine that old to have to be plugged in all the time.

    Avoid the Firepro if you plan on doing Mastercam.
