the problem with that is not enough ram, not very big screen, and not hd.
Then I suggest he look at these 2 from Asus:
G72 (Core2Quad, 6gb RAM, GTX 260M, Full HD): http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g72gxa1-p-2722.html?wconfigure=yes
G73 (Core i7, 8gb of RAM, Mobility 5870, Full HD): http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g73jha1-order-p-2731.html?wconfigure=yes
The G73 will be a pre-order since it hasn't been released yet, but the G72 he should be able to get immediately as long as they still have them in stock.
edit: both come standard with dual 500gb HDDs and Blu-ray players.
