I already have Mac's. Solid Works is industry standard as well as the design program that is used exclusively by the company I work for (its for Windows only).
Screen size isn't really too relevant, I'll be plugged into 22-26" wide screen LCD's from the laptop. I just need a portable computer I can lug around between home and work.
Basically I need a good "bang for the buck" system. Good processing (2.0 Dual Core is where I'm aiming for a minimum) as well as 3g Min ram, and some form of GPU, doesn't have to be a gaming PC but it needs a little more than an integrated chip can do.
