Re: ...I mean using it for work....

I'd like to know. if anyone's tried to used the 5670 or 8886 for 3D/work apps...MAYA, Autocad I'd really like to get some info or benchmarks on this side of the Sager's performance, because I usually need to bring my job to site, and my desktop is not exactly portable. The Dell laptops are simply not good enough.......Alienware's seem to fit the bill.........that is, til my partner directed me to this site.
I am currently using a P4 2.66 with a gig and a half of memory and a recently updated GVX 420 card. I use it primarily for Autocad and VIZ, but will also be doing 3D StudioMax and Maya, which I am taking courses for. They all work well on our desktops, anyway, we are scheduled for hardware upgrades in 3 months plus.....laptops.
The first time we used laptops for presentations they performed badly(so bad, that they were relegated to a.v.i./powerpoint presentation). Then, about a month ago my boss sees a laptop running a 3DMark graphics benchmarking software. So now were going to go mobile.
My question, how well does a souped-up Sager fare in 3D modelling, OpenGL transformation, lighting calculations. Has anybody tested it with Autocad or Viz and alike, and how does it fare with other laptops?
Thanks a lot. I really appreciate the input guys!
