Best High perfomance Notebook (Games,editing,web surfing,1080p video) under 1200-1300$


May 2, 2013
Hi guys , so as soon i am done configuring my PC,now i have to choose best high perfomance notebook for my brother under or around 1200-1300$,
so what are his needs:
Mainly he is going to use it for internet 1080p videos and video editing and gaming purposes(medium to high settings). The most important thing for new notebook is stability and long battery life(fully charged from 5-6 to 8 hours average life)
Also important attributes are:17+ inch screen with at least 1600x900 resolution and normal/good GPU.

I have set my eyes on 1 HP notebook which seems to fit his needs here it is:HP Envy dv7t 7000 quad edition series

OS and recovery media System Recovery DVD with Genuine Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit edit

Note:notebook should come with windows 7 not 8 ,because it seems hard to downgrade prei-nstalled windows 8 to 7 without problems

Anyway i need your help and advices
Downgrading from 8 to 7 means you have to have Windows 8 Pro and Windows 7 Pro. Otherwise, you can do a full install of Windows 7 rather easily. :)

Since most OEMs ship a good majority of their systems with Windows 8, it's a good idea to look into resellers, as they are willing to do more customization and can install Windows 7 for you, if a system you're interested in comes with 8 from the OEM factory.
