DELL Inspiron 15r SE 7520 or HP ENVY dv6?

I'm looking for some advice on which laptop to pick. I'm a college student (architecture), and have narrowed my choice to these two - due to i7 processor (multi-core proc needed for renderings), and dense 1080p display with matte finish.
Here are the specs:
Dell Inspiron 15R Special Edition:
i7-3612QM (2.1 GHz, 3.1 GHz Turbo, 6 MB Cache)
8 GB DDR3 (1600 MHz) RAM
750 GB 5400 RPM
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7730M
HP ENVY dv6-7360ew:
2.4 GHz Intel Core i7-3630QM
8 GB DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M (2 GB GDDR3 dedicated)
1 TB 5400 rpm SATA
these are in comparable price, and the HP seems a little better - better processor, keyboard has a keypad.
So, it comes down to reliability and design quality overall - which do you think is better? I've read some unfavourable posts on HP's customer service, but I don't know how DELL's look like.
