Laptop

I am looking at investing in a laptop to use for mechanical design using Inventor 5.3 and eventually 6.0. My biggest hangup now is finding one with a compatible video card. Is there any recomendations. I see Dell has the Precission M50 with the nVidia, Quadro™4 500 GoGL, 64MB card. This unit is nice but a little pricey. Is it possible to find a usable system for less than 2K?

Thanks
