I use 3ds max, maya, after effects, photoshop and Matlab. I am not intending to use the laptop for gaming but for graphics. I was searching for a laptop according to my budget which would best for rendering and a bit processing between 800 to 850 dollars and as per laptops available in my country, I can see CPU and GPU as per below,

HP Pavilion 15-n043se
i7-4500U (4M Cache,1.8 GHz up to 3.00 GHz)
GeForce GT 740M

HP Pavilion 15-e068se
Intel Core i7-3632QM Processor (6M Cache, 2.2 GHz up to 3.20 GHz)
AMD Radeon HD 8670M 2 GB DDR3

Dell Inspiron 5537
Intel® Core™ i7-4500U Processor (4M Cache,1.8 GHz up to 3.0 GHz), 4M Cache
AMD Radeon(TM) HD 8850M 2GB GDDR3

Can you please advise what would best suit me

Samsung ativ book 6, $900 last gen i7 quad core, amd 8770m
A little over price, but the 4500u is a dual core i7, as for the hp it has a quad i7 but graphics wise is only ddr3, which huge step up is ddr5

For video rendering you'll most definitely want a quad core i7, and ddr5 memory. The ativ book 6 is available from Microsoft for $900, has 1tb hhd and 8 gb ram. Can upgrade hhd to ssd and ram to 16gb. For the extra $50-100 I would most definitely recommend the ativ book 6

Personally, I would go with an Asus or Lenovo. HP's are junk and Dell's aren't much better. Of those 3, the i7 3632qm system is the best for your needs. The other two i7's are dual core with hyperthreading. Any i7 ending in q or qm are quad core models with hyperthreading.

Dear Dblkk,

I made a lot of search and the result is
I couldn't find samsung Samsung ativ book 6 in my country Egypt, but tried to search for close specs and with no much difference in budget and here what I found HP Pavilion g6-2330ee with i7-3632QM and Radeon HD 8750M and for its price it is 862 $

I also found Lenovo IdeaPad Z510 with CPU i7-4702MQ which is a bit better than HP but with lower GPU NVIDIA GT 740M which is DDR3 and not GDDR5

Can you tell me if this would be an acceptable laptop for graphics work or it won't make much difference?

I also found

Inte i7-3632QM (6M Cache,2.2 GHz up to 3.2 GHz)
NVIDIA N13P-GLR Graphics 2GB(GT 635M) 

Can you tell me if this would be an acceptable laptop for graphics work or it won't make much difference?

There is a reason Lenovo passed HP as #1 in PC sales, quality.
