Upgrade my laptop or bootcamp my mac ?

Feb 25, 2018
I have an hp laptop with following specs
Core i5 5200U
4 gigs tam
Nvidia GT 940 m

and Macbook pro 2016 with
i5, 8 gigs of ram and pcie ssd 256 gigs

I'm an engineering student and I have to work on softwares like solidworks, catia and ANSYS. As these softwares are not available on mac, what do you guys thing i should do ?

Should I upgrade my windows laptop to 16 gigs of ram and a sataIII 250 gigs SSD (this is all my budget can allow )

Or bootcamp a copy of windows ?
The speed of the two systems should be pretty close, I've used Windows on a Mac before and it ran well. If you have a separate laptop, you may want to use that to avoid having to mess with the Apple.
