Laptop Specification for SW2008

Hi, I have to purchase a laptop for a colleague of mine so that he can run SW2008 on it while he goes to china for the next couple of months. I found this HP laptop and would just like anybody's opinion on whether I should rather be looking for something else.

HP 8710W Workstation Series Notebook
Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 2.2Ghz 4MB cache 800Mhz FSB
2048MB DDR2-667 SO-Dimm memory (I will be ordering another 1GB) = 3072MB
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1600M 512MB graphics (I assume this is shared memory)
Microsoft Windows Vista Business Edition 32

My main concern is running both SW and Vista at the same time, and then having shared graphics memory. Should I maybe order another 2GB instead of just 1, to make it 4GB of RAM? According to the sites passing graphics cards, the 1600M is not on the list, but a 1400 and 1700 is.

Any comments or help in this regard would be much appreciated.
