I'm searching for a new laptop but don't want to break the bank. I'm trying to keep my budget under $1000. I want a fast system, but I don't need anything serious for gaming. My main focus will be video/photo editing for surveillance work, therefore, something fast enough to do conversions, transfers, merging and all other basic video/photo editing features.

Currently I'm looking at the systems below from a local computer store and wondering what others think of them. I'm not committed to anything specific and willing to take other suggestions. I'm not too picky on features, but I don't want cheap stuff either. My main requirements are a minimum of 15" screen, 500gb HD and 8g memory. I'm not sure if there's much difference with the i7 and i5 or quad core and dual core processors. Though hoping you good people can fill me in on that.

Thank you for any assistance.

The third laptop on the list seems to be the best one since it has the fastest graphics card and also having a quad core i7 would speed up the conversions for video editing.
