Since this system is a Configure-To -Order machine it is difficult if not impossible to answer your question. Of course Harm is correct in that Adobe is not supporting the Quadro 3700M at this time.

I have this Dell orange beast laptop "Dell Precision M6400 Laptop - nVidia Quadro 3700M (1GB) Dedicated memory and Total available Graphics is 4 GB".
Is this laptop compatible to use Adobe - Premiere Pro CS5 ?
The full answer to that question is not in our technical expertise since we do not know what is in your machine. We do know from what you have told us that it will probably never will have hardware accelerated MPE. But for instance does it have a 64 bit OS? If it does not then it definitely would not be compatible.. Chances are if you accept not having hardware MPE that it might be possible to use this "workstation" notebook with CS5.
Yes, this laptop has Windows Vista 64 bit
None of the Mobile GPU's are officially supported by the MPE. I enabled the 285GTX on our 9000 laptop with a 980X and did some testing. It accelerated through the GPU but heat is a strong concern in watching temps and it was mainly the CPU heat building up that was the cause of the concern. On this laptop the CPU and GPU heatsinks are separate but the ambient heat increase from the CPU was causing the overall decreased heat dissipation on the heat sinks allowing the heat to build up on the GPU and CPU. What this means is safe use of CS5 on laptops really should be Software MPE anyway which your laptop can handle regardless depending on the codecs your dealing with. The more compressed codecs may require rendering to playback but that will also depend on your editing style.
I own a Lenovo W700 which has the exact same video card as the Dell M6400, a Quadro 3700M and with a little tweaking MPE can be enabled. I edit footage from my EOS 5D mrkII perfectly fine and in real time with no crashes and the temperature from the Quadro seems fine. I still don't understand why Adobe doesn't include other videocards to be compatible with MPE.
Anyways, hope that helps.
If you want to make sure your GPU or CPU is not overheating due to the enabled MPE then use this utility while your running Adobe. Since the load will vary based on many conditions, this is the best way to get an idea what your heat is getting up to. http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor-pro/versions-history.html
If the Temps of either your GPU or CPU are getting over 80C then heat is a concern and you will want to go back to the software engine.
