Basically any i7 MQ series laptop with a graphics card will fit the bill.

Is there a reason why you're not going with a more powerful desktop?

i would go with a desktop if i was you

 

if you will only use a laptop

then u need one with a quadro card

 

the K5000m and the K5100M are the fastest Quadro cards

sagar has the best bang for the buck when it comes to workstations (from what i have seen)

you can choose a desktop CPU too

 

 

EDIT

better to buy an average workstation laptop if you will buy a desktop too

If your grave doesn't say "rest in peace" on it You are automatically drafted into the skeleton war.

shouldn't they pay for it then? that's ridiculous if they are making you buy a laptop out of your own money, imho, buy a decent laptop around $600 then spend the rest on your rendering desktop

Something along those lines^

If you are not required to be confined to a laptop, get a cheaper laptop to work with and render/do actual work on your desktop.

I would get an ultrabook or a good portable notebook and a powerfull desktop. You don't want to carry around a notebook like that, believe me.

Intensive 3D animation will require a lot more than the i7 in the Blade especially if you want it to be to render quickly.

There are the Dell mobile workstations:   m4800, or m6800

 

depending on model, you'll have a selection of quadro:  k2100m, k3100m, k4100m, k5100m (8GB!)

 

Available in various i core processors up to i7-4930mx extreme edition  (none are soldered so you could potentially upgrade from lower CPU later)

 

4 memory slots with the i7 quad cores, allowing up to 32GB

 

If you go Dell then definately get the Pro warranty with it's next business day service.  I've used Dell's pro service alot and is much better experience than their basic service.
