Subject: NONMEM System Requirements
1. I am considering purchasing an Intel machines for my NONMEM work. Can anyone provide any guidlines or experiences for what scale of machine would be required? This would include things like CPU choice (486, Pentium), speed, memory requirements. Is an 8MB 486DX4 virtually unusable or a reasonable practical consideration? The $ available are very limited so any experiences you can share would be very helpful and greatly appreciated.
2. Does anyone have any benchmarking data that might provide some real numbers in terms of run-times on different classes or speeds of processors, and memory configurations?
3. Also what development environments (Powerstation Fortran or ?) would you consider the best.
I know there are many who have significant knowledge and experience in this area and your assistance in helping me make an informed decision would be greatly appreciated.
