Hi guys, I wanted to see if I could get some feedback from the forum as I am currently in the market for a laptop and I have a 1000$ budget.
 
I have a laptop in mind but wanted input from knowledgeable peers.
 
This is the laptop I am currently looking into. I want to be able to use if for light video and photo editing (as I do a majority of my rendering on my custom desktop) and for word/excel processing. However one of the more important factors for me is battery life (which is not listed) and life time relevance of a device.
 
The link is below, feel free to comment.

If you have a question for me...ill answer it quickly. Thanks.

The Sony laptop looks perfect for the task but estimating the battery life can be tricky but generally Ultrabooks lasts at least 6 hours.

Sony look good but here I want to show you what you can getting for 1000 dollar.  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834312439

 

It is fastest than 1600 dollar laptop with GTX 670MX.  No DVD internal but you can getting DVD external on amazon for cheap.  

 

My another opinion is you can wait for Haswell to come to ultrabook which this CPU is 10 watt TPD.

Dual 650M in SLI is not faster then a 670MX and the laptop will definitely not last long on battery considering there is a quad core i7 processor and 2 650M graphics chip.

Oh dear.  I swear I put a word that it is only 3 hours life on my last comment but it seem error at first.  Anyway where source say that GTX 670MX is fastest than SLI GT 650.  Just curious.

It is same site as I talk about.  I meant GTX 670MX (this is on number 48), not GTX 675MX.  http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html
