If you really want a graphic design video card you should either consider buying a notebook with an ati FireGL card, or a notebook with an Nvidia Quadro. These are specifically designed for these tasks and will perform better then any other card. But to answer your question, yes, the 3650 will probably run things like Photoshop, Flash and such quite fine.
Actually, I ended up buying an HP EliteBook 8730w laptop with a nVidia Quadro card. It was pretty cheap and it kicks all kinds of ass!

I see it's already been answered kind of, but i have a studio 17 with that same graphics card. It's actually rated quite highly in reviews, i'm not sure where you got your info. But it is as good as it gets for video editing, so i'm sure it would work great for your purposes. It seems to do fairly well in gaming as well, it just can't run demanding stuff like crysis on the highest settings.
