Advice for new laptop for Interior design use

I need to purchase a laptop within days since my T61p retired few days ago. I work in an interior design industry, therefore Autocad, Sketchup, 3d Max, Photoshop are MUST have items. I have a budget of $1500; 15 inch screen; i7 processor; a great graphic card which can do a great job. I hope it will last for 3 years or longer.

  1. - Intel® Core™ i7 2760QM 2.4GHz (3.5GHz w/Turbo Boost, 6MB Cache)

    The list above is a setup I did @ alienware. The price is around $ 1800. Will that do a decent job in autocad, 3d max, sketchup and Photoshop?
  2. <--- $1,200

    Then add in: <---- $200

    and two of these: <--- $104

    Total: $1,500

    The laptop I linked has a better GPU in it, a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 15.6", but no Blu-Ray optical drive. Still, it will be $300 cheaper.
  3. i think the hardware profiles depends on the exhibition scene size,,if it contains facets and triangles of 10 billion, like the blow do,,,then the higher the gpu of the laptop the better , surely
