Which do you prefer/recommend?
We are using Dell w/ AutoCAD 2005 right now. I'm going to upgrade to the latest AutoCAD and purchase new laptops. Dell has been hit and miss for me in the past. Is Lenovo any better for AutoCAD software?

I'm a little disappointed at the selection in the recommended systems - Xeon processors everywhere. I suppose thats due to the fact those are the only systems with recommended/workstation video cards.
