That these specs will be fine to run Lumion on a laptop?

    Intel® Core™ i7-3610QM Processor
    Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64bit
    15.6" Full HD Anti-reflective Display (16:9; 1920 x 1080)
    NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX670M discrete graphics (GDDR5 3GB VRAM)
    1.0TB (7200RPM; 500GB x 2 in RAID 0)
    12GB DDR3 1600MHz system memory
 
I'm thinking up upgrading to make myself more mobile as my current life situation has made it necessary.  I just hate the thought of buying something I can't really upgrade myself.  So if I do I want something that will get me through at least 2 to 3 years.  Thanks for your patience with what I can only assume is a constant and redundant question on this site.

Looks like enough juice to run Lumion twice @ the same time until you beat Lumion into submission.

Remember that a real 680 gtx will be much much much faster then any laptop. Not strange when you see how much power you need to put in such a card. It just doesn't run on a battery yet!

We are planning of creating a benchmark system so that Lumion users can upload their results and it becomes clear what hardware runs Lumion scenes the best.

well the GTX 570M was getting benchmarks well over 1500.  So I would venture to guess the 670M would be close or better.
