Well if you aren't going to play those games that you mentioned, then you don't need a VGA as powerful as 5850M/5870M, something like GT 330M/HD 5650M suffices.
Sager NP7110 would be a great choice http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np7110-built-clevo-b7110m-...
Between this and MBP,well the Sager one will give you more performance and costs cheaper,whereas MBP has a better build quality,more battery life and better display quality and its lighter too
