Garth - is the Precision M4700. Swapped the drive out with an SSD, 1920x1080 and it does very well. Great keyboard, solidly built. I didn't go core i7, i5 is more than enough for my development needs. I did lose the Radeon graphics card a while back, but three year next day support is worth it. You just need to get past the level 1 support drones insisting you have a driver problem...

The nice thing about this model is that if you are not using the dvd that much, you can get a replacement drive bay and stick another SSD in there. Or a spare battery. I don't do that much road warrior work - more of going to the lab, coming home and working at the home office, repeat.
