Default Workstation laptop

Hey guys, Ive been given the task to find the best laptop configuration for a music production workstation. It will mainly be used for the software fruityloops but also used for office/clerical type work. Gaming is not important.

Ive been searching for a list of laptop cpus, like a hierarchy list but cant seem to find one. Everything im finding has desktop cpus in the mix which is annoying to sift through...

Im reading that single core performance is important for that program and that 8-16gb of ram is sufficient.

The more challenging part is the budget ive been given to work with.. 600-700$ CAN max (including tax).

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Theres a start, thx.
Would buying lower gen models like i7-4710MQ be worth it?
