No, that isn't what Bob means. He had a very unpleasant experience with HP last year (they failed to repair a laptop that still had warranty), so he dismisses all HP laptops (the 2 top rows).

In the bottom row there's only one laptop with an Intel i3 processor. That's the Samsung. But would you really like a pink laptop?
The specs on that site say nothing about the graphics. If you're heavy into 3d you might prefer a laptop with better graphics. Maybe the i5 variant is better. Maybe it would have to be a totally different (and more expensive, maybe even more than that 500 GBP you mention) one. I'd use their online chat to ask them what they advise.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
