I need a new notebook for video editing (Sony Vegas) and multimedia works (Photoshop, Flash, Cubase, Ableton Live ...)

I have found these similar choices:
--------
01 >>>> TOSHIBA - Satellite P50-A-14L Monitor 15.6" Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ Ram 12GB Hard Disk 1TB NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M 4GB Windows 8.1
--------
02 >>>> LENOVO Z510 Monitor 15.6" Intel® Core™ i7-4702MQ Ram 8GB Hard Disk 1TB NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M 2GB Windows 8.1
--------
03 >>>> ASUS - N550JV Monitor 15.6" Full-HD Touch Intel Core i7-4700HQ Ram 8GB Hard Disk 750GB Nvidia GeForce GT-750M 4GB Windows 8
--------

Which one is the best for reliability and performance ?
(suggestions? advices?)

8GB RAM is more than enough. So 12GB RAM wont provide much significant performance boost as a better GPU will provide.

Multimedia features like video editing will depend upon your components(like cpu, gpu,). And yes in general Asus quality is better and is Tier 1 brand.

Edit: They all are pretty good brands. If you want the one with best overall performance get Asus one.

ASUS - N550JK Monitor 15.6" LED Intel Core i7-4700HQ Ram 16GB Hard Disk 750GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX850 4GB DVD±RW 3xUSB 3.0 Windows 8.1

Yes and no. The answer actually depends on what you are going to do, and how much resourses your programs your working with will consume. Photoshop will use 75% of your resourses right off the bat, unless of course your running an i7 cpu with 32 gigabites of ram. If I had a choice between a computer with 8 gigs and a GPU and a computer with out GPU and 12 gigs of Ram I would take the GPU because I can always add more ram if I really need it. The GPU has processors and its own ram dedicated to the GPU. Its going to load graphics from games and basicily the ram handles the information that you see on the screen. When a GPU is in use the system RAM will less worked to handle what information the OS Kernal and the additional programs you choose to use. From the list you have provided us with I would choose the ASUS and purchase and additional 8 Gigs of ram later, or now, or even look for the modle higher than this one. Honestly you may not even really need 8 gigs.
