well... yeah.. i currently use a thinkpad T43p and I'm going to swap with the new T60p... which have FireGl V5200 
instead of V3200.. I'm ok with my current performances with houdini .. and I guess I'll gain a little bit with new one...

main reason I actually bought the new one is Dual core... which i hope Houdini gains some advantages from it....
