No such laptop today.

When we see a high end video card, you find the battery time is lucky to get 2 hours.

This also means more weight as that high end video card means more heatsink material to get rid of the heat.

Maybe in a few years but not today.

High performance and good battery are contradictions.

Basically high resolutions are found on larger laptops because they have the bigger screens. You won't find 1920 x 1200 or 1920 X 1080 on anything less then a 17" laptop. Most 17" are 1440 x 900 while most 15" - 16" are 1366 x 768 or 1280 x 800.
