Laptop to run a U2711 Display at 2560x1440 as 2nd monitor

I've just bought a Dell U2711 27 inch display as a 2nd monitor for my laptop and found that it can only run it at 2048x1152 on the analogue VGA port, so I'm looking to replace the Laptop.

Can anyone confirm that the Dell XPS 17 with the 3 GB GT 555M graphics card has either a DVI-D Dual link port or a display port and will run this screen at 2560x1440. alongside its own screen at 1920x 1080 happily.  Can you also tell me whether the 1 GB version of the 555M in it would also work?

Is there any other of the Dell Laptops which has a 1920x1080 screen itself and has either a DVI-D dual port or DisplayPorts to will run the U2711 at 2560x1440.

Thanks

Steve
