While I appreciate the answers of the ArcGIS power users here, I do think they overrate what is really necessary. ArcGIS for Desktop, unless you activate 64-bit geoprocessing, can't even adress more than about 3 GB, and I have seen it crash when it attempted to do so in extensions that didn't fully catch this limitation in their code... I have seen ArcGIS ...

This computer will not perform well with ArcGIS. Trust me, you will eventually care about the processing speed as opposed to whether or not it will simply run. The only way I could recommend using this computer is if you have ArcGIS installed on a remote computer (i.e. with good specs) and you connect via remote desktop/VPN using this laptop. As a point of ...

Short answer, use the DEM. Handheld GPS units of the type you mention (consumer grade), can potentially use two different methods to figure elevation - the calculated GPS position or an internal barometric altimeter. Because of the way GPS works (explained at the page mkennedy originally linked to in a comment, and elsewhere), without high-grade, corrected ...

Like Mikkel said, you do not need any kind of advanced graphics card. Tools that run on dedicated servers rarely even use them at all. Instead I would suggest investing in an SSD. For ~350$ (price of the graphics card) you can get a great one. This will make accessing the imagery very fast and is probably be the biggest performance impact you can have.

Graphic cards of significant size are generally not required for 2-dimensional GIS. Once you start visualizing 3D-stuff it becomes useful, but that doesn't appear to be your use. The non-requirement of the graphic card is further underlined when establishing a back-office setup like yours. While I am by no means an expert on Mapbender3, I don't think that ...
