According to people on www.notebookreview.com, these two cards are pretty much the same. Is that true? However, the 570M seemed to score better in benchmarking software.

I'm trying to decide between the Dell Inspiron 1520 and the Lenovo ThinkPad T61. I'm leaning towards the Lenovo due to much better quality and reliability.

If the 570M is based on the 8600M GT, which to go for really depends on what you'll be using the notebook for. The latter is designed specifically for games whereas the former is geared towards CAD applications.

Out of Dell and Lenovo, I would also recommend Lenovo as I believe I've heard very good things about them. I can't say the same for Dell.

People at www.notebookreview.com said the only difference between them is drivers?

The main difference between the two is drivers but there may be some very minor architectural difference as well, I'm not sure. You'd be better off asking someone more informed about that.
