Why isn't Dell M90 Approved for SolidWorks 2009?

I don't know about all of you, but I need to be mobile, my job requires me to go and work at my customers site. So 3 years ago I bought a M70 for my Faro arm and a year later bought a M90 to replace my desktop in hopes of getting 3 years out of my machine. Mainly due to high cost of it. I also looked at HP's mobile workstations at the same time. From what I see HP's machines from that era are certified, but not my Dell's. I want to know why? I bought the upgrade to the 2500 video card. I do not know how the certification process works, Maybe Dell presents the machines to SolidWorks or maybe they do it together, I don't know. I know folks that are running 2009 without any problems on the M90, so why isn't it certified. What if SP2 fixes some problems but causes problems on the M90 and I call my VAR and they basically tell me to buy a new machine. I don't have $3500 for a new laptop in my budget.

Haw many of you got cut from the SW approved list? I did noticed that there are 42 pages of approved computers and graphics cards for 2008 if you list all of them and only 21 pages for 2009. I wonder who is to blame here???

I would like to hear from you if you have run into the same situation.
