Even for basic 2d work. Am using a Windows 7 (64 bit) Toshiba laptop, first generation I7 (1.6 ghz), NVIDIA GeForce 310M (512 mb) video card with only 4 gb memory. Works fine for AC 15 and AC16, but crawls to a near stop with the same file in AC17. I think the maximum memory for my machine is 8 gb. Any hope for better performance with a memory upgrade or would that just be putting lipstick on a pig?

My main machine is also 5 years old but it is a MacPro with dual-quad Xeon processors and 32Gb of RAM. AC17 seems very snappy to me.
So far I have only used it on a small residential project so I can't be sure how it would do on one of my hospitals but I suspect it will be an improvement there as well.
It would be good to know if there are processors that actually perform worse with 17 or if it's just a matter of adding more RAM.

My experience has been that the Xeons pretty much kick butt compared to anything else (which is why my 5yo machine is still serviceable).
My laptop is a pretty recent i7 so I don't have any current experience with the Core2, but the specs of the machine in your sig look pretty good. How old is it?

Archicad 17 is extremely slow. It is impossible to open two files at the same time. This needs to be resolved as soon as possible.

Hello Marton, I have using ArchiCAD since version 3, opening two teamwork files at the same time. Panning, copying and pasting is nearly impossible. Each command takes a lot of time and both files freeze after three minutes.
