Your best bet would probably be a gaming oriented laptop, since they generally have better/faster processors and graphics cards which would make editing better. The lenovo y580 (if it hasn't been replaced with a newer version) is a pretty good sub $1000 one, 1080p 15 inch screen, good metal body, quad core i7, gtx660m <great gpu, especially for the mercury playback engine, it will accelerate stuff a lot. But basically for adobe stuff you need a nvidia gpu and a good processor. A 7200rpm hard drive is also a must (unless you replace it with a ssd). You can also upgrade the ram to 16gb, I think it only comes with 8gb or so.
But I really would not get a macbook pro, since they will be a lot slower unless you get a really high end one, like the newest retina ones with gt650ms/quad i7s. But even then, the y580 has a better gpu and is 1/2.5th of the price.
