Help on buying new laptop

So probably this is not the right category, but I didn't know where to include it.

The situation is this. I need to buy a new laptop for a collegue of my who works in an office as a media digital trafficker. This means that he's works with flash and video banners all day.
Flash files usually consumes a lot of processor both cpu and gpu.
Videos usually uses cpu processor and hard drive.

Approximate Purchase Date: this week
Budget Range: 1300-1800 After Shipping
System Usage from Most to Least Important:]/b] working with videos and swf files (low resolution videos, ej 800x600 max)
Are you buying a monitor: Since I need mobility this has to be a notebook
Location: Miami, Florida, USA
Parts Preferences: by brand or type Intel
Overclocking: I would prefer not
SLI or Crossfire: Only If you consider necesary
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Basically what I have in my mind is this:
VAIO S Series 15 Custom Laptop
3rd gen Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM quad-core processor (2.20GHz / 3.20GHz with Turbo Boost)
Windows 8 64-bit
15.5" LED backlit Full HD IPS display (1920 x 1080)
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 640M LE (2GB) hybrid graphics with Intel® Wireless Display technology
256GB (128GB x2) solid state drive with RAID 0 (Save 50%, reg. price $440.00) [$220.00]
12GB (4GB fixed onboard + 8GB removable) DDR3-1333MHz [$90.00]
CD/DVD player / burner
Internal lithium polymer battery (4400mAh)

the price for this configuration is $1509.99
the other option is buying a mac book pro, and run windows instead of OSX (btw he need windows).
