There are two laptops HP Compaq 15-s105TU Notebook (4th Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 1TB/ Free DOS) (K8T61PA) http://www.flipkart.com/hp-compaq-15-s105tu-notebook-4th-gen-ci5-4gb-1tb-free-dos-k8t61pa/p/itmefwzfmgwxrf2c AND HP Compaq 15-s103TX Notebook (4th Gen Ci3/ 4GB/ 1TB/ Free DOS/ 2GB Graph) (K8T82PA) http://www.flipkart.com/hp-compaq-15-s103tx-notebook-4th-gen-ci3-4gb-1tb-free-dos-2gb-graph-k8t82pa/p/itmefwhzp3u664bg .

One has intel i5 processor but no dedicated graphic card and other has i3 with 2gb NVIDIA GeForce 820M .

So my question is which will be best for me. I will use it for:
Adobe photoshop cs6 (occasionally in 3d mode), camtasia studio, Visual Studio, Netbeans, Eclipse, Android studio and some other similar softwares. I will rarely use it for gaming (such as GTA san andreas, NFS most wanted, call of duty modern warfare and some latest games [may be in low quality].).

well the GPU alone is capable enough to run games such as The Crew, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Far Cry 4, F1 2014, Civilization: Beyond Earth, FIFA15, Sims 4 alot other 2014-
the i3 processor is powerfull enough for most tasks you would need, im using 1st gen i3 CPU and GeForce 520M and im still able to play Dragon Age: Inquisition

I would still go for the one with dedicated gpu, the integrated HD graphics wont give you the relaxed feeling you probably look for when playing a game.

Can I run software like Adobe photoshop cs6 (occasionally in 3d mode), camtasia studio, Visual Studio, Netbeans, Eclipse, Android studio and some other similar softwares without any issue.

I am asking this because this i3 processor is clocked at 1.7GHz. Is it enough to perform all tasks (including gaming and these softwares)?

i ran Photoshop CS6 for a while (although only for basic stuff) and i used to render videos with Sony Vegas. I dont know if that helps but I dont know about the rest you listed... never knew how demanding are they
