I recommend the NP370R5. 

In theory it can run OS X. 

The NP530U4E can also, but it is unclear to me if it has CPU integrated graphics. If it does, you can not use the HD 8750M.


That said, if you are looking for a notebook, specifically for OS X, go for the NP370R5E.


I'm saying in theory, because nobody can guarantee that OS X ill run on certain hardware.

the computer is

Samsung NP370R5E-S01:
i5 3230M 2.60 GHz
amd radeon 8750M
802.11bg/n 1Gigabit Ethernet 
is that mean that it also not going to work because of the amd radeon 8750M?
here is the details of other computers:
asus x502ca-xx014h:
Intel HM76 Express
cpu i5 3317u 1.7GHz
Gigabit Ethernet
Asus X402CA-WX035H:

Well, basically it comes down to this. 

If you have a laptop with integrated CPU graphics, that you can not disable in the bios, when it has another dedicated card (i think it is called that.) The dedicated card will not work, not now, not anywhere soon in the future. 

If the notebook has Intel wireless, you will have to switch the WLAN card, to 1 that is OS X compatible, or can be made compatible through kexts or a DSDT edit, this is not possible with the Intel WLAN cards.


From what i have read, you are new to the OSx86 scene, and are just looking for a notebook that will run it. 

Choose a notebook with an Intel processor, some compatible audio like the Realtek ALC series, and keep in mind what i just stated above.


If you also want to use the notebook for Windows, you can skip the part about the graphics, it's still possible to run OS X, but you will not be able to use the second card in OS X. And it requires some more spending time, when installing and setting up the system.


Best of luck on choosing your system. 


If i'm incorrect on some part, please correct me.
