      First thing first, are you going to use the ANSYS Student (free) version or you have some academic licenses ? 


      If the former is the case, your model size will be restricted.


      Thanks,


      Win

      For student version pretty much anything that's OK for gaming will work, you just need to check the graphics card. If you already have a laptop try the software on that first. Supported hardware  https://www.ansys.com/solutions/solutions-by-role/it-professionals/platform-support   Note, we don't have a Mac build for those poor Apple addicts. 


      The reason for checking the licence is that you can only use 512k cells, so (roughly) will only use 1-2GB RAM maximum. With unlimited cell count (Research or Commercial keys) solving over a billion (10^12) cells is becoming common, but not yet routine.
