I'm a CAD Designer and I'm considering getting a notebook pc.
AutoCAD mainly, but maybe use it for Solidworks and 3dSMax.
Not going to use it for games.

Any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Any modern laptop will do anything possibly imaginable in the computer these days. I would go for IBM with my closed eyes any day of the night in the morning of the sunset.

..this is very useful and helpful place for information...

You can get an ATI FireGL in laptops now. The last one I saw was a T2, there might be newer ones out now. If you are doing rendering stuff like that you might as well get a rendering card :) 
I know the IBM Thinkpad T42 can have a FireGL in it. I seem to remember seeing one in a HP not to long ago but I can't seem to remember the model number or find it on their site.
Well, at least that should make the decision a little easier. You wouldn't have many choices if you went with a rendering card, lol. Just be prepared for IBM to reem out your wallet. Believe me it is worth every penny though. IBM knows how to make a laptop. Hopefully Lenovo continues that tradition.
