Not to hi-jack, but I have a Toshiba Satellite C55 or something like that. I5 Intel CPU. It had 8GB ram, but recently I have upgraded to 16GB, and upgraded the SSD from 256GB to 1TB. The SSD really makes a performance improvement.
I also wish the graphics were better. I have it connected to a 22 inch monitor and the lid stays closed all the time (I use a Microsoft wireless keyboard/mouse). There have been times when I zoom in all the way to view details, Sketchup 2017 will hang and I can't zoom out. I have to click the extents button to get out of the close-up view. Not sure if that is a program bug or my computer set up.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
