I need a new laptop pretty soon .

I don't want any smaller than a 17" screen, and I will need one that will run the Adobe Creative suite (I use cs5, but will upgrade soon) Specifically I need one powerful enough to run PremierPro without completely taxing the processor.

I do a lot of gaming (starcraft2, skyrim, etc...) as well, so I'm also looking for a good graphics card that can support at least 2 monitors.

Why not just build a PC? I travel a lot, and I want something that can go anywhere with me.

---

As a side note, I will need something that I can carry it in which offers a lot of protection and space to double as a carry-on for additional 'stuff' ... like the laptop cooler, a mouse, keyboard, etc.

Anyone have one of the Rosewill laptop backpacks? I've seen some good reviews on them and just looking for another opinion from someone who may have actually purchased one. (I'm looking to get one of those because they seem like a good price)

ANYWAY -
pros an cons of laptops would be great, and especially from ppl who own them already.

For sure. My advice, get the best nvidia gpu you can (http://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus). It will basically always be paired with an i7, so you should be good on that end as well. RAM you can always upgrade yourself for less.

Not sure on your price range, so here are a couple options:

Lenovo G700 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834312833)
- Core i7 3632QM (2.20GHz)
- 6GB Memory
- 500GB HDD
- 17.3"
- Nvidia GT 720M
- $650

ASUS X750JB-DB71 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231149)
- Core i7 4700HQ(2.40GHz)
- 8GB Memory
- 2TB HDD
- 17.3"
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M
-$999

MSI GE Series GE70 2OC-081US (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152455(
- Core i7 4700MQ(2.40GHz)
- 12GB Memory
- 750GB HDD
- 17.3"
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M
- $1199

Obviously, the more you spend the more you get. Particularly you want the best nvidia GPU you can afford, for Mercury Playback Acceleration in Adobe Premiere. The more CUDA cores, the better Premiere can run. These are all excellent laptop brands, with good CPUs.

Hope that helps!

Expensive, but the most portable 17.3 in gaming laptop in the market. If that's too expensive than the GE 70 that ACTechy recommended would be a good option too.

Good, but questionable quality imo.

Cheaper, less powerful CPU (ignore rating, 2 bad ratings made it how low it is)

MSI would be the best for the price, that or if you can spend over $2,000 a Razer Blade Pro may be better.
