With the exception of video editing (which I'd probably only do from a
laptop if I were desperate, such as having a job as a travelling video
editor), I'm not sure why you're excluding chromebooks, since they do
everything else on your list for WAY less money and fuss, and they're
more secure than how almost anybody actually uses a desktop-oriented
linux distro.

But, I'm curious to see what comes up.  Anytime I'm tempted to buy a
traditional laptop I end up looking at what they cost to be able to do
the sorts of things I couldn't do on a chromebook and decide they're
not worth it.  I can't remember the last time I spent $1k on a
computer, and that investment goes a lot further on a desktop (where
at least I can replace the MB+CPU+RAM without having to replace
everything else).
