A laptop with a graphic card to compute vectors

Looking for the appropriate laptop for my son who is an engeneer student interested in cognitive ergonomy, he asked me to find one that has a graphic card so to ease the load of computing on his project. My search turned around nvidia graphic card and i7 cpu. I came up to:

Would you say that the i5 cheaper version could do the job? Or do you have a better proposal? The screen could be smaller, cheaper, but the graphic card should be a good one.

$1100 for a laptop!! Not including shipping and sales tax!! Wow!! :shock: That's double what I would pay for a laptop.

I've had two Acers before my Dell. They're an OK brand imo.

Do these laptops have a graphic card? What do you suggest in the same line as what you had purchased?
