Hey guys, I'm looking for a laptop for editing photos and 1080p videos. I use programs such as go pro cineform, Photoshop, and Lightroom. I was set on this laptop but I don't know yet.

Laptop requirements:
CPU: i5 or i7
Ram: 8gb or more
Storage: Atleast a terabyte unless SSD
Graphics Card: idk, I want to be able to game a little and use gpu accelerated programs
Screen:1920x1080 or better no smaller than 15"
Budget: 1,000 or less

I'm going to be traveling with this laptop so I was hoping for decent battery life. Hoping for 5 hours but that may be pushing it.
Weight: lighter is better but I can handle a heavier computer.

I already have a desktop that I built for editing and heavy gaming, it's just that I travel every weekend and can't haul that around.

You might want to take a look at this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152568&cm_re=msi-_-34-152-568-_-Product

MSI GP70 Leopard-010
Intel Core i5 4200M (2.5GHz)
8GB Memory
1TB HDD
NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M 2GB
17.3" (so Full HD)
Windows 8.1 Multi-language

Or if you got a lil' bit of money to spare, take a look at this one:

MSI GE Series GE60 Apache Pro-003
Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz)
8GB Memory
1TB HDD
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB
15.6"
Windows 8.1 64-Bit

-> I think there's still room for 2 extra SSDs and you can change some of the specifications if wanted.
Both are about 2.5 kg (5.8 lbs or something) and have 6-cell lithium batteries (good for around 3.5 - 4 maybe 5 hours (not gaming - but that's with every laptop)).
