Looking for video editing / graphic designers laptop


Sep 27, 2014
Hello everyone.

I would appreciate everyone's input here as I'm looking for a laptop that I could use for doing 1080P video editing (premiere) & raw photo editing (photoshop) and maybe some video gaming.

This is what I've gathered so far.
+ I need i7 quad core
+ 8-16gig ram
+ dedicated graphic card
+ SSD for operation & application files / HHD for storage
+ size doesn't matter. hence 15in - 17in laptop is fine.
+ I travel, so desktop is not an option.
+ My comfortable budget is $1000 but will accept recommendations up to $1500
+ I live in Canada
