With a lappy I'd go for the most powerful processor available when you buy, cos they're pretty difficult to upgrade. I'm not entirely sure which of those is most powerful but I'd put my money on the i7-720.

Desktop i5-4440 - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 - EVGA GTX970 - 4x4GB 1600MHz - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - Be Silent Base 800 - 3TB+1TB+1TB+640GB
Laptop i7-3740QM @ 2.7GHz, 2x4GB 1600Mhz, GT640M, OCZ Agility 3 120GB
Smartphone Galaxy S7 Edge

I have the i7 720 in my alienware M15 and i have to say i am totally impressed with its performance.
Its way over the top of anything i have ever used before, I generally multi-task alot, using anything up to 3-4 programs at the same time and probably up to 10 webpages open too and i have not seen the CPU usage above 20% and never had it hang or slowdown.
As you can tell i'm a big fan of the i7, hope thats helpful in someway
