Default Laptop for Graphic Designer

In need of a new Laptop for graphic design.. Mostly need to run the Adobe Master Suite CS4 with little slow down. What do you think of these options:



Toshiba Satellite 17.3" Laptop, 2.53GHz Intel Core i5-460M, 4GB RAM, 640GB HDD (L675-06J) Link $779.61

Samsung 17.3" Intel Core i5 460M Laptop (RF710) - with NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M
Link $849.99


HP Pavilion 15.6" Laptop, 2.26GHz Intel Core i5-430M, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD (dv6-3077ca) with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 Link $797.00

I couldn't view your Toshiba link. I'm not in Canada. But I found one at Newegg.ca
Newegg.ca - TOSHIBA Satellite L675-06K NoteBook Intel Core i5 460M(2.53GHz) 17.3" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 640GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650

I don't particularly like HP, but if someone else knows it is good, go ahead. I'd go with the faster core, nonetheless.

I'm not sure about the Samsung, looks good. I just know Toshiba to be good

Must have overlooked that. Yeah, the Samsung is better.

You may want to check out the new Dell XPS 15. It has dedicated DX11 Nvidia graphics and the Optional 1080p display is one of the best panels you can get in a laptop.
