Hi,

We just want to confirm the performance (before buying) of
13" Non-Retina MacBooKPro, 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5, with 8GB RAM and SSHD (Fusion drive) for ArchiCAD 17 to 19.

If anybody has Experience with it PLEASE SHARE. Thanks.

Dhaval,
The 13inch MacBook Pro is not suitable to run ARCHICAD effectively, you need the 15 inch model with dedicated graphics card and 16Gb RAM

I second that.

About a week ago I actually saw ARCHICAD 19 running on a current 13" MacBook Pro and OpenGL performance (3D Window) is very slow in comparison with 15" MacBook Pro with a dedicated video card.

ARCHICAD 19 was usable on 13" MacBook Pro, but in no way smooth or fast.
