Other than the M60??

I know that the Dell M60 would be the best choice for a laptop to run SW,
but other than that, are there any other honorable mentions? I'm looking
for something that I'll use part-time when I bring work home or go on the
road. Any suggestions?

Brian, I bought an Inspiron 5150 simply becuae it was about 1/2 the price of the M60. It comes with an inferior graphics card that I was able to "Soft Quadro" to an FX500 and enable RealView (and stop the dreaded "multiple window slowdown"). It has been a great buy.
Inspiron 5150 P4 3.06GHz 512MB RAM (I'll exand soon)
Paid $1600.00

So the SoftQuadro works on this machine? How is performance overall (with SW)?

Overall performance is great. I do a lot of complex sheet metal parts, and some assemblies in the range of 1000-1500 parts and have been quite pleased (you might want to browse this group - I'm usually very happy with all things SolidWorks).
The machine came with a GeForce Go card, and after a little trial and error (and the proper instructions) I was able to apply the Soft Quadro patch in a few minutes. Works well.

Which FX Go card exactly is it? Is it the GeForce FX Go5600? If so I assume you used the instructions with the modified .inf file I posted awhile back. If not - I would be interested in any additional info you may have.
Thanks,
Markus.

I got a M60 from the Dell refurbish site for $2250.00. You might want to look there.

Same here, I bought a new M60 just before the new year and got it for 2850. not bad. A week ago I picked up a another one on the refurb site for 2400. IMO the M60 is worth the extra cash. Its easy to waste time (= money) monkeying around with a machine that doesn't perform perfect out of the gate. I would wait and get a 60. Habu

Which drivers did you start from to apply SoftQuadro?
Here, we did it with the 40.72 (Gef4 - TI), and SW support asks us to upgrade drivers for SW2004. Is it bulls..t?
Thanks JM
