Not sure about other units but I have an early15.6" Software Test Precision unit and its pretty easy to carry around. Can't say I've done much CAD work with it but its extremely portable.
I think its around 6.15 lbs and comes with quadro 1000m or 2000m

I think they're all just getting heavier. I have an m4500, which weighs about 6 lbs. I was thinking something more along the lines of the Dell m2400, which was about 4.5 lbs but discontinued a few years ago.

I think dassault has it right. It seems the HP 8460W weighs in at the lightest (4.9lbs) at least for anything mainstream.

This may not be helpful but I've used SW07 on an Acer Aspire One with XP... Barely!
