I ran the OCUS Pro/E benchmark. ( www.proesite.com
<http://www.proesite.com/> ) It is the best Pro/E benchmark out there and my
favorite system benchmarking tool. It runs through a trail file of commands
in Pro/E. I used Pro/E version 2001. If you compare results to the one on
the webpage make sure you only look at results from 2001 other versions are
different. The Laptop was 47 seconds slower than my year old workstation.

So if speed is most important in your laptop purchase you should look at
either the Dell Inspiration 8500 with the Pentium 4-M and the Geforce4 4200
or a true mobile workstation with a cad graphics card. If you need better
battery life ect go with the Centreno. Dell is the only vendor with a
Geforce4 4200 go system.
