Don't ignore me :(

Don't go with an i7. Period. You don't need it. You probably wouldn't need an i5 if not for the fact that you wanted to do video editing. You also might want to consider AMD instead of Intel if video editing is important to you.

You said you're planning to play games, what kind of gaming do you do? Modern gaming on laptops is problematic, getting a decent build costs a lot and ability to play modern games on laptops scales directly with heating problems and power consumption.

My earlier recommendation for CyberPower still stands. The premium they have on putting together machines is very small compared to other retailers.
