For photo editing and video editing u need a dedicated GPU or a AMD APU.
For gaming the same criteria.

All of these are good offerings,
But my advice would be to wait for 1-2 months to buy a laptop because ivy bridge is being released and AMD Trinity APU laptops are being released and they will increase performance so much and their power consumption will be so less and the price point will be low.
So if you can wait 1-2 months or at least until summer where the real models will turn up.

For video editing you do need a dedicated GPU or a AMD APU for hardware acceleration, a intel hd 3000 is worthless piece of crap for it.
That is why I said wait for ivy bridge whuch has HD 4000 which is decent and AMD trinity which is awesome too.

For video editing you do not need a dedicated GPU or a AMD APU. Seriously. You do not need either of those.

edit: both of the integrated GPUs (HD 6620G and HD 3000) have dedicated units for hardware acceleration decoding and encoding HD videos on the GPU.
