Y570 0862-2KU

Will a model Y570 with HD Graphics 3000 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M successfully operate CAD programs like CATIA, Solid Works and Pro Engineer PTC since it has Optimus technology or is the W520 series with Quadro 1000M and 2000M with certified drivers my only option?

It might work, but not as efficiently as a card that uses Quadro drivers would. It'd be a lot easier if you did use Quadro cards, but I've seen some people softmod their GeForce cardds to use Quadro drivers for improved performance in some CAD programs.
One article detailing how one would perform it: http://www.techarp.com/showarticle.aspx?artno=539
