There are two or three models that come to mind for 3D/CAD work. These are the i9300, the XPS Gen2, and the Precision M70. Depending on how much you are willing to spend and what form factor you are looking for, one of these laptops should work for you. The i9300 can be configured with a Go6800 gpu that will work pretty well with those programs, and it costs much less than the other two laptops. The Precision M70 is really the way to go if you can afford it. It's designed...

That's rather interesting because it implies that they are going to soon release a replacement for the M70 with a nicer gpu. Interesting indeed. We'll have to see what comes of this.
Hmm, no I don't think the 700m case will work, lol. I use a Case Logic 15.4" case, but I can't remember what it's called. It's very well made though, so I'd recommend looking into those. I also use a Tucano notebook sleeve if I just want to carry the laptop in my backpack. Just make sure you check the interior dimensions of whatever you buy. Just because it say's "15.4" " doesn't mean your computer will fit nicely. Hope this helps.

I think about 900,000 of those were actually started by Isuzu_Trooper . Anyway, I say get the 9300. Sick graphics, nice screen, moderate (though not overbearing) size. It's a great laptop. Hope this helps.
For me it would break down like this. If they do release a 710m within 21 days of you buying a 700m, go ahead and return the 700m and buy the 710m. No harm done. If it's not released within 21 days of you buying a 700m, then it was too long a wait anyway. Kinda screwy, but that's what I would do. Hope this helps.
This depends on the TV monitor you are planning on using. Standard definition TVs will force you to scale down your resolution or only view part of the screen. However, I just bought one of the new Samsung 1080p DLP TVs that can display a full 1920x1080 picture (true HD). The TV also has a PC input (VGA, but it works fine) so I can actually use it at almost the same resolution as my laptop screen (1920x1200). In your case, with the 1280x800 TV, many laptop screens have...
The M70 is built to a far higher degree of durability and stability than the i9300. That's not to say that the i9300 is poorly built; it certainly isn't. However, the quality of the Precision line is far beyond what you will find in the Inspiron line. If your only concern is gaming, though, I would go with the i9300. It will get better performance, and it will cost far less than the M70. The Precisions are designed for workstation class CAD/3D work, so unless that type of...
I've been trying to figure this out as well. The M70 isn't a very common laptop so they don't usually mention it. However they did mention the M60. I guess my rule of thumb is that if it works with the D810, it works with the M70. They're almost the same computer, save a few differences.
