Best laptop for CAD

I run Solidworks on a 2008 aluminum Macbook with 4 GB RAM, a 128 GB SSD, and a 750 HDD. Obviously I have a partition with Windows 7. Solidworks, Matlab, Mathcad, Comsol all run fine, but I'm wondering if it's worth the money to invest in a proper mobile workstation. I like the Lenovo W series, what other brands are decent that isn't Dell or Asus. I'm a 5th year undergraduate student and I'll be beginning my capstone in a few months.
