Laptop for 3D rendering


Dec 23, 2012
I am looking for a laptop under $900 for 3D rendering in primarily Maya (I also use Photoshop and After Effects, if that needs to be taken into consideration).
It's /not/ going to be a desktop replacement, just a high performance laptop that would let me work and render on the go.
I am torn between a better graphics card or more ram, but other than that, these two laptops are pretty much the same (minus a few details that aren't super important-hard drive size and processor speed).
Anyone have any advice? I don't really care to game on it and would be using it everyday (btw, I am a college student).


and if something else blows these two out of the water please let me know!
