Help finding a laptop

I'm in search of a laptop for my boss, and he has some specific wants. He wants dual core, 17" display, docking station, a big brand (HP, Compaq, IBM, Dell, etc.) and Windows Vista. Do you know where I can start looking? Any suggestions with model numbers?

Thanks.

    There is no upgrades for productivity software so if you add it it may cost you more.
  2. Does your boss have a price range to work with?
