Question Deciding between "workstation" laptops (nw9440 and M90)

I've finally convinced my employer that I need the latest and greatest in laptop replacements. After some research I've found that the following 2 could (fingers crossed) possibly run in a linux-only scenario: HP nw9440 & Dell Precision M90.

I realize that only a few might be using these with linux yet, but I will remedy that by posting to linux compatibility boards when I finally get my laptop.

My requirements:
T7200 processor, 2x1GB RAM, 17" WUXGA screen (need lots of vertical resolution), nvidia quadro fx (for openGL programming, not games), wired & wireless lan, usb2 & firewire (firewire is important)

Has anybody here got insights into issues concerning linux compatibility, support or performance with the two mentioned models (or any other similar for that matter) and the specs?
