    My understanding is that Autocad is one of those apps which is both Windows only and a 3D application. That means you will need a Macbook Pro at the least (for the dedicated graphics card) and Bootcamp (because Parallels doesn't do 3D as yet) to run Windows for times when you need to run Autocad.

    Though, if you're going with a desktop AND a laptop and don't need to run Autocad on the laptop you can go Mac Pro for the desktop and Macbook (regular, not pro) with the laptop.
