The answer is no. The GTX 580, or any full size video card requires more space than any laptop could provide. In addition, the recommended power requirements for these cards call for a power supply that can only be accommodated within a full size PC enclosure.
I have a Clevo x7200 with a desktop i7 970, 16 gigs of RAM, and the GTX 485M 1.5 gig. It performance is very good, but would probably improve with the GTX 580M. It is very heavy and if I were only working in Lumion, I would go with a lighter system with the GTX 580M. Unless you need the desktop i7, I would go with a system with the mobile i7.
