opinions on good at sound synthesis pc

Hi all,

new here on the forum! I hope not going to multiplicate this kind of question, but :
I'm changing machine, from macbookpro i5 3d gen, dual core only, to a pc.
I'd only want to know if you guys are familiar with the following computers so you could tell me if some relevant issues come with them, regarding of course musical production, e.g. noisy fans, trouble with internal soundcard, or CPU critical issues, like "oh no man everybody knows that cpu is really bad suited for audio", and viceversa if you know one everybody appreciated generation of cpu.
I'll use the computer running mainly SuperCollider, MaxMsp, Pure Data, Ableton, Reaper.
So real time sound synthesis, DAW recording.
Here are the models I was pointing to:

-Dell Inspiron 7380 Laptop 13.3" Full Hd, 8th Gen i7-8565U, 16GB Ram, 512GB Ssd
-Lenovo ThinkPad t460p Core i7-6820hq 16gb 512gb SSD 2560x1440
-LENOVO THINKPAD P50 Notebook [i7-6820HQ 32GB 512GB SSD 15.6" 4K
-Dell Precision 3520 QUADCore i7 7820HQ 16GB RAM 512GB SSD WORKSTATION
-Lenovo ThinkPad E 14 10th gen i7

Thank you everybody
