ASUS ZenBook UX430UN-IH74-GR and 3D modeling software?

I'm an incoming university student who's looking for a laptop to work on light 3D modeling/texturing, some rendering, scripting, and writing papers on the go. The plan is, if I have to work on very intensive rendering or modeling, that I'll use my laptop to remote into either the lab computers or my main workstation (6-core AMD FX-6300 processor, 24 GBs of RAM, 2048MB ATI AMD Radeon R7 360 Series for video card, 223 GB Solid State Drive and 1TB hard drive, but planning on upgrading the OS and harddrive space). My current pick is the ASUS ZenBook UX430UN-IH74-GR.
I can't post the link since I just joined, but here's its specs:
PROCESSOR

I apologise for the format.
I'm planning on using programs like Maya, Mudbox, and possibly Zbrush and Substance Painter, but I never used the later two programs and, if I have to, I'll probably just use my main PC.
How would this laptop fair with working on 3D modeling in my case?
