I am assuming you want a laptop for both its portability and mobility, but you pay in both price and power for it. I don't know about laptops so I won't recommend one personally.
But I bet if you said 'Desktop', you would get more than a few recommendations for a PC you can build yourself for 800 that will do what you want it to and better than it's Laptop counterpart.
Best of luck on your search!
