I'll use the laptop primarily for some light work on stills in Lightroom and the usual email, web and office stuff but I'd also like to be able to do some basic video editing.
Does anyone edit HDSLR footage on a PC laptop? What's the experience like?
I basically want something that has:
- 1080P screen
- Numeric keypad (for use as shortcut keys in lightroom)
- Fast enough for video editing (5D2 footage in Premiere Pro)
- HDMI Out
- Able to add SSD at a later date.
Would one of these be okay for basic editing?

Is there a PC laptop that a lot of people use for this sort of stuff?
