    Well, the questiion is how much you value portability. The most powerful "laptop" is one of the 17" desktop replacement notebooks with 6-core processors. But they are huge, weigh more than a small child, and cost more than a used car, so if you value portability at all then probably a 15" or 17" with a mobile quad core processor will work. I don't know what kind of video editing software you (or your sister) use, but that would affect the recommendation. Some video editing software can use GPU acceleration (Sony Vegas comes to mind) and csme can't. If you use software than can use a GPU, then you would want one in the laptop; otherwise, a powerful processor with integrated graphics would be fine. As far as reliability, I do not have any advice since I have no experience in the laptop market. I would also look toward the screen because if you edit HD video then you will want a screen that can display at HD resolution.

    A high end gaming or workstation laptop, that will run you 3k to 5k. And it's not made to run on batteries for long either......
