I need alternative suggestions for a great quality laptop other than the Macbook Pro to make sure i'm looking at everything that's out there, i want something that's new to the market so it has the most up to date hardware such as Ivy Bridge. I'm looking at a price point of around £1200-£1300, i want something that has an Ivy Bridge core preferably 2.4GHZ i7 but a simular speed i5 would do, at least 8 GIG of DD3 ram but more the better, plenty of storage - best case would be an SSD for booting the OS etc and a hard drive for storage running alongside it, a high res anti-glare screen, good graphics capable of playing Diablo 3 on full without issue, good for video editing, good build quality and plenty of battery life when using it unplugged and by using i mean internet browsing and listening to music not just sitting idle.
It's been pointed out to me that i may be jumping the gun on going for a Mac but at present i'm fed up with my current laptop that i've had for about four years (believe me if i could've dumped it sooner if i could have) and has frustrated me in limiting what i can use it for, this time i won't make that mistake again and i'll buy something top spec.
Oh and i do not want another HP!!
