On an i5 w/8GB of RAM and a mobile ATI Firepro(Workstation) card, everything works well. There are a few programs that like to be consistent in reminding you that they are not to be used professionally, though I have not found this with AutoCAD or 3DS Max Design. There is one error box that pops up when opening 3DS Max Design, yet nothing appears to be affected in performance so I just ignore it.

Best yet, the 3DS Max Design is the same as 3DS Max except for a few minor things, so it works great for 3DS Max class.

Update: 1.Error Fix - I created a user account in Windows 7 Pro 64bit, set it to admin, and deleted my other user acounts, then recreated them... and the 3DS max error disappeared. 2.Memory - 8GB is enough RAM to stop using the hard drive for extra RAM for 3DS Max 2013 Design. 3.Graphics - Many Spline problems with 3DS Max 2013. Corrected with November 2012 graphic driver updates. 4.SSD - In general, the programs in this Autodesk Suite will perform much faster with an SSD. Microsoft Visio 2010 x64, Microsoft Office Professional 2010 x64, Adobe Photoshop CS6 x64, Adobe Illustrator CS6 x64, Rhino 5 x64, Microsoft Expression Design 4, OpenCanvas 5.5, and Toon Boom Storyboard are benefited significantly when running from an SSD. Adobe After Effects and Microsoft Expression Blend 4 have issues with SSDs. If you use either of these two programs, do not get an SSD. 5. Performance - These Autodesk programs are jealous of memory... especially if you use apply step two. Check Windows Task Manager on running programs to see what programs will run well at the same time. Programs that use around 20MB before a document is open shouldn't deteriorate performance. OpenCanvas uses 18MB, Visio 2010 x64 uses 20MB, Rhino uses 40MB with no document open. 3DSMax uses 540MB, Autocad uses 270MB, Photoshop uses 115MB, Illustrator 190MB, with no document open.

I have spent countless hours trying to obtain the key to activate this software. I can't find a phone number to get help. When I complained on facebook, they directed me to their website where you can an answer in the knowledge base. No luck, nothing described the way I received this product. Their is no product key on the package. The activation gives you no way of getting a key. I received no key via email. Repeated requests from the company have not yielded a key. I would suggest not buying this product on Amazon.

This is a fully operational suite of the top-of-the line programs contained in it. The only restriction is that it may not be used for commercial purposes. Otherwise, it is fully functional and exactly like the commercial program. Any student in a field that can use design programs of this kind should seriously consider purchasing this suite.
