I need a laptop that I can do some editing with. I use Adobe Premiere almost entirely.

List of Preferences:
-SDD (128GB)
-HDD (Less necessary because I have a external hard drive, but for more convenient storage it would be nice)
-Space for 16GB of RAM, from what I've heard this is standard

Are there any suggestions of preferences I should change or add? If you have any laptops even close to similar I'd love to see them.

I forgot to add that price range would be between $1000-$2000 (So no HP zBooks)

Thanks

if you are dealing with editing you should invest in a laptop with high GAMUT that is MAC's retina display or go with sager, they recently got 95% matte gamut but is unfortunately out of stock as of the moment, i suggest waiting for it to be re introduced again. also invest in a good Vid card

you'll be better of with a Sager NP8258

with 1,400 USD you can get a laptop with significant power from Sager

i would recommend going for
NP8258 - for 1369USD youll get:
15.6 FHD Disply wait for the 95%Gamut version
i7-4700MQ 4th gen haswell processor (same processor)
GTX 860m 4GB Vidcard (upgrade to 870m or 880m according to budget)
win8.1
8GB ram
120 SSD +750GB HDD

you can customize the parts as needed, or take the NP8258-S package upgrade

you can also put 2 SSDs and 2 HDD in this unit, and get a raid 0 config which will further speed up things.
