Had a look at the kind of box Dell can provide in the precision desktop workstation range for new labs at work. My precision laptop is great and the specs possible on the desktops are jaw-dropping (in performance and price).
The graphics options now go waaay upto the Quadro FX 4500 which isnt NVIDIA's best (now at 5600 in the FX range and that ignores the Plex cards, whatever they are). The 4500 is rated on their site at 181 million triangles per second - whew (though the 5600 clocks in 300 million!)
Interestingly, the 2500M in the M90 laptop is rated at 181 million triangles as well - impressive, most impressive.
