Best laptop advice for video editing?

I am looking to do a lot of video editing with all kinds of video formats.What kind of laptop do you recommend! I asked one of the retailers and they said a good video card will take the pressure off having to buy a top end laptop. I am looking to spend around $1000. What's your recommendation! thanks

What software are you going to use! A lot of video editing software takes no advantage of the graphics card anyway.

I mainly use covertxtodvd etc. But that's because my current laptop is poor.But I am looking at using adobe premier and cyberlink powerdirector soon.

For $1000 I don't think you're going to get any card which will help meaningfully in Premier (at least in a laptop)

Premier is a resource hog. You really want a quad core and lots of memory more than a fast video card.
