I have started doing a project and I promised to report my results every week to my professor. At the beginning, he told me you should have a reasonably good laptop. I thought my laptop could support the project.
Yesterday, I realized that my laptop has a 2G graphic card and the project needs a laptop with the at least 3G graphic card. I have written the code but my laptop can't run the code to see the results.
What should I tell my professor? If I buy a new laptop it will take about 1-2 weeks, however my financial support from my family is poor.
