You will not find a laptop for $500 to run zbrush and mudbox smoothly.
You will not even find a desktop for this amount considering that yo have to buy the monitor too.

id post some links but im not sure if that is against the tos but there are a few sites that sell refurbished gear for pretty cheap, u could look into that and maybe find something with enough power in that price range.

Hmmm.. I suggest holding your money for a while and try to save some more. If you plan to have these softwares working to the maximum quality, then might as well use an appropriate Laptop. Be patient, don't rush things. With time, you will make the following softwares run smoothly with your appropriate computer. Smile

Be patient, earn more and buy desktop if you want to save some money. Strong desktop is much, much cheaper than laptop and it looks like you need cheaper stuff.
