Hello, I'm looking for help or a recommendation for a 17" laptop for around $1k. I mostly surf the web, but I commonly have several web sites and apps open at the same time. I also want to be able to do minor photo and video editing (no gaming). I don't care about size, weight or battery. I just want it to be fast and reliable.

I'm considering one of these HP's Black Friday deals:

Fyi, Those laptop is used for different scenario. Omen for gaming and Envy for work. you said you're not into gaming. So, I assume that you don't need much performance. I recommend to pick the Envy one because it has latest Processor and more storage. but if you want best raw performance you can consider buying Omen. it also has better sound and design (if you like gaming laptop design)
