Choosing Laptop For Engineering

I am a beginning biomedical engineering student and need to purchase a capable laptop for the next 4 years. The one I'm looking at has the following specs: intel i5 2450M-2.50-GHz-is dual core, standard memory is 6 GB DDR3, screen resolution 1366 x 768, has a dedicated Ge Force 610M 2GB graphics memory. Will this work? I will be using CAD/AutoCAD, Solidworks Student Edition, Matlab, Scilab, Octave, MSC Software, Cosmol, and Labview. If this laptop won't work, do you have any suggestions as to what specs I need? Please help.

Thank you
