Hey Dan,

I'm not much of a techy, but it sounds like a powerhouse.
I currently use a 5 yr old laptop with a Pentium M 1.6 Ghz with a 2 M cache and 2 gigs of DDR2 RAM and no fancy video card and just started seeing a slow down as my models have become more complex. I just ordered a new laptop with a duo core processor running at 2.2 Ghz, 2M cache and 4 Gigs of DDR3 RAM with a video card that'll share up to 1.8 G of memory.

My neighbor who does a lot of CAD rendering, video editing and music production through a very similar setup is quite happy with it.

I'm not a big fan of Dell but I do check out their website for comparisons. I ordered my computer through because I live way out in the sticks, (not very far from you as the crow flies but an 10 hour drive to Canmore) If I lived in town I would certainly talk to the local shops.

Happy computing
