I'm also currently looking at getting a new multi-media laptop, though I am leaning a bit more towards gaming, but... I started out looking at the Envy 15, but after they dropped the i7's, I started looking around. I would strongly suggest you look at the Lenovo Ideapad Y560. I've never bought a lenovo before, but I seriously think it looks better than the Envy, and looks were one of my fav things about the envy.
Here is a link to one of the versions on Newegg, though Personally I would rather have the version with an i7 740 with bluray drive...
But as you'll notice it doesn't have a 1920x1080 res screen, so now i'm looking at MSI's GX660R... (newegg's images aren't that flattering for this one, but MSI's product shots are a lot clearer http://www.msimobile.com/level3_productpage.aspx?cid=6&... and then click on the gallery) But that's a bit more of a gaming machine than I think you're looking for.
