Note: A Linux version of Google SketchUp Pro 7 isn’t available and Windows 2000 won’t be supported anymore!

Image If you consider buying a new machine then please pay extra attention to the
graphic card. On Windows, we recommend boards with a Quadro FX 1500 and higher chip from nVidia.
These cards support OpenGL very well and are very stable because of
quality drivers. OpenGL is the 3D system that the Operating System uses for generating 3D display information and therefore is very important to SketchUp Pro. Note that Windows Vista supports OpenGL very poorly, Windows 7 is a better choice.
