I’m so torn between these 2 laptops. I use Rhino and Revit most of my time, also Maxwell render, PS, ID, AI…

I’m not very familiar with hardware. Please bear with me if I’m asking stupid questions.
How does the 1TB 5400 rpm Hybrid Drive compare with the 256GB Solid State Drive Full Mini Card + Additional 500GB Hybrid 2.5inch, 6Gb/s SATA with 8GB Flash Drive? I am used to save my model/drawings frequently, and I do a lot of last minute render (sadly). Dose the 256 GB SSD compensate the downside of the M3800 CPU for what I do?
I know M4800 obviously has better CPU and GPU, but not sure how much better it is going to perform than the M3800. If there’s not much ‘noticeable’ performance difference for my daily tasks, I would tend to get the lighter M3800.
