Can you have a laptop that's a high-performance CAD station?

  1. A client of mine is moving from manual drawing to AutoCAD - he's got one
    machine in-house that's a kick-ass graphics workstation. Bought it from
    Dell, 3 processors, lots of video memory, lots of main memory, a pair of
    SCSI drives, a pair of 20" flat screen LCD monitors - the thing kicks
    ass and cost $8,000 or so.

    Do they even make such a thing as a laptop? Has to be Windoze/XP, have
    a docking station, etc. He hasn't used CAD yet, just played with it, so
    we're all a little ignorant as to how important the hardware is.

    In direct response to your question; No, they don;t make laptops with
    3 processors and two SCSI drives.

    However, there are many laptops which will be more than ample to run
    high-end graphics and design applications.

    Take a look at Dell's Desktop Replacement series of laptops.

  3. Well, 2 processors, but you get the idea. (My typo, my bad).
