I hope they're not one of the macs that has the heat problems. Been hearing about that lately. The battery life is because they do have the brains at least to include rather high Whr batteries standard (iirc). I don't think you can get one for less than 999 still.

I'd put video editing out of reach and photo editing at a snails pace on the one I linked. S-X pretty much had the best you're going to find in the price range but you'll have to take the weight and size trade off if you want that power.

http://www.overclock.net/laptops-not...p-listing.html I just posted a comparison chart of 34 different laptops, I'm sure there are quite a few that meet your requirements on there. You could look at the Lenovo Ideapad Y460p, its about $1100 but its a 14" with 8GB of RAm a 500GB 7200rpm HDD a 6550m and a sandy bridge quad core.

edit: oops, didn't see your budget of $850, that knocks out the lenovo, you could look at the Dell XPS 15, dual core sandy bridge, and a GT 525m for $800. Not sure on the battery life though as dell doesn't list it.
