4670 and 240m is definitely comparable. I'm going to have to agree with Gamputer and say go with the 240m

Default Re: ATI vs nVidia Graphics

so what would be a more powerful setup:

Lenovo Y550 - Intel P9600, 4gbDDR3 1066Mhz, 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 240M
HP dv6t quad - Intel i7, 4gbDDR3 1066Mhz, 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 230M
Dell XPS 16 - Intel T9600, 4gbDDR3 1066Mhz, 1Gb ATI HD4670

Again, im not a HUGE gamer but will be using very graphic intense software for 3D modeling and rendering(CAD, Maya, Inventor, Revit, Sketchup, etc).
P.S. Thank you for your help thus far!!

o.0, go for the i7, what you lose in gpu erformance, you gain in cpu performance, which is just as or even more important than a video card for rendering

As far as the Graphics card goes...
I went into Best Buy today and talked to one of the guys from the geek squad (Seemed to know his shit). Pretty much summed it up by telling me the HD4670 and the 240M are fairly comparable to each other. The difference between the 230M and the 240M is gunna be a 25-40% performance increase. He also said pretty much the same thing mongoman was saying. The increased power of the processor works with, and makes up for the decreased power of the 230M
