I have an engineering class where we have to use CAD products and Maya. I want to run the dolphin emulator for.... ya know... games. I have to be able to code java and run maya at max. Could a i5 4200u (surface pro 2). I like to play SOME games that are intensive but I highly doubt I would be playing them on the game. I would mostly do 3d stuff, 2d animation on adobe flash, photoshop, premiere (a little), and gamemaker/unity. I want to spend around $500 because money is hard to come by as a student. We are provided macbooks but you can only install some programs on them and you are limited to being in the classroom. Before you say anything, I have a desktop with an i5 4690k and a gtx 960.
