      For everything you have listed right there....

      There is nothing beter than a Macbook for you. They are used to specialize in things such as website making, photo/video editing and the whole multimedia bundle. I would stronlgy reccomend a Macbook for yours needs.

        I am typing this on a Dell Latitude Notebook. I have had it over a year, and I have had no complaints.

            Stay away from Dell i have it(Inspiron) and i have had a lot of problems so far. Same with Sony stay away, both use outside parts a lot of them and put it together in their laptops.

            You want to spend 2,500 and you do some basic things, besides Photoshop. If you want portable as well, go IBM. They are nice, and you should be able to change the graphic card and not get stuck with the Intel one. Toshiba is another way to go, but I say IBM.

              What laptop company doesn't use "outside parts"?

              IBM doesn't make laptops. Their laptop division was purchased by Lenovo years ago.

                    Toshiba has been making the best ;aptops over the past few years...just recently bought a Satellite A215-S4757

                    It has been great so far...no complaints with Vista

                      As far as top of the line products...which you seem to be looking for I have a couple of options. But I have a question for you...since you have a desktop you like would you want a easily portable laptop. I would assume that would be ideal..basically you lose some gaming capabilities and the screen size isn't going to be great for movies. But there are some really good products in that range right now.

                      Dell XPS M1330 - would probably be my person pick
                      Lenovo ThinkPad X61s - probably gives you a little better overall performance
                      Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 - the best performance wise..battery life isn't as good

                      If portability isn't a big problem for you definately go
                      Toshiba Qosmio G45-AV680 (Core 2 Duo 2GHz, 2GB RAM, 160GB HDD, Vista Ultimate)
                      basically top of the line laptop out...#1 rated on Cnet in your price range.

                        Im pretty sure HP uses their own parts. I remember hearing that the mother board and a bunch of other parts are all there's. Just saying.

                          So far I have been mainly concentrating on Gateway's and Dell's but have a problem with each. On Gateway you can't get a processor over 2GHz on any of their models and with Dell you can but it's pretty darn expensive. In a perfect world I thnk I'd like to get a Dell M1710 (powerful, looks cool, etc.) but whenver I modify with with the configuration I want it ends up being well over $3k ($3,716 to be exact with warranty, etc.), which is more than I'm looking to drop.

                              Sure, the motherboard is about the only component that would be made by the laptop company. Even then, it doesn't make it any better.

                                Stop looking at GHZ and start looking at L2 Cache and Cores. Much bigger difference than 200mhz...
