Dream Laptop

Here we go again.
I have finaly convinced the powers that be that my current laptop is severely hurting productivity. They have their checkbook in hand and are ready to get me what I want (need). The only restrictions I have (unless I have good justification) are that it be a Dell with largest possible screen running windows 7, 64 bit. I’ve seen this question answered in past posts, but I cannot seem to find them.
I am running
1- Pro-E 2001 through Wildfire-4.
2- Rhinoceros
3- Magics Bijoux
4- Solid-Scape Model-Works
5- Snag-it
6- Soon we will be adding a mill
So if money is no object, what is the latest greatest Dell laptop configuration best for running pro?

Thanks in advance

I'm running a M6500, Core I7 with 8 gigs of ram, solid state disk drive,
Nvidia FX 3800 graphics, etc.



It's about the best Laptop I've ever driven - and I've driven a lot over the
years



My "only" complaint is the power connector is cheesy (as in, it won't stay
connected in your lap if you move around) - i.e. - NOT positively locked
into place.



For what it appears you are running - I'd go with the Core I7 with 16 gigs
of Ram

Get the extra battery and the docking station



Be prepared to get a workout when you travel - this guy's heavy

I have finally decided laptops suck. If you want to show a powerpoint, you can put it onto a USB drive and plug it into most projectors now. Ditched a Dell M65 for a Dell Precision T7500.
