What are doing with the laptop? Neither card is certified for any CAD program. I have a Radeon 9800Pro in my home machine and it isn't certified, but UG and Pro/E run fine on it.

Just want to do some light 3D model (less than 1000 features, helical sweep, a bit of surfacing, a lot of patterning features, family table part & assembly, assembly with less than 20 components with family table) while on the plane and on vacation.

If I were you, I would take ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 (better for CAD than GeForce FX 5700)

As I mentioned in the other post, the Radeon Mobility is big trouble. Ben is having his work fine on his home DESKTOP machine, but the Radeon is not the same as the Radeon Mobility found in laptops.

Thank you all for your additional input.
Even though many users don't recommend ATI Mobility Radeon, I am still going with Dell. If ATI giving me too much trouble, I may have a chance to upgrade to Nvidia card later. Effectively, based on my own research most of Inspiron 8xxx series display adapter is upgradable in the past. I can't vouch the same thing for HP though.
