Ask Engadget: Best laptop for multimedia editing?

With the world seemingly focusing all of its heated attention onto the world of teeny, tiny netbooks, Seamus is turning his eye elsewhere. Have a look at his very important inquiry below:

"I'm a college student who's not concerned with owning the next smallest thing in laptops. I don't have as much time for video games anymore, but wouldn't mind being able to play them on occasion. However, I love experimenting with bits of movie editing, Photoshop, and recording drum tracks. Is it too much to ask to be able to do these things, at least decently, on a laptop? Looking to spend under $2k if possible, and battery life isn't all that important."

We'd say it's very possible, the question is: which machine is best for the challenge? That's where you come in -- after giving your input, send in a question of your own at ask at engadget dawt com.
