Auto Desk, AutoCad, Civil 3D - Laptop Hardware recommendations

I need to identify a laptop for our high end  users that are working with AutoDesk software-AutCAD and Civil3D, 2008. Any tried and true recommendations? Thanks.

You might need high end laptop system. I recommend you the IBM / Lenovo.
Years ago the biggest problem with autocad etc was the regeration time. As the technology developed this did not becom an issue.

Now I have a desk top with a 2.4 CPU, dual threading and two gigs of memory. I see this as a comfortable level. Autodesk 2006 vs 2004 slows down a bit, thus the following suggstion:

I would insure that you have a dual core cpu which is now standard and 2 gigs of memory expandable to 4 gigs. I would put the largest HD that you can afford also.
