First things first.

It's spelled laptop, but hey we all make mistakes some times don't we?

Out of the current laptops you have been looking at, I'd go with..

Probably the best performance out of all 4 you chose, might not have the nicer look such as the hp laptops would give off, but appearance isn't everything.

None of them. You want this:
  • Core i7 Mobile CPU
  • 8GB DDR3 1066MHz+
  • Forget the GPU - laptops are not for games, get a basic dedicated card like an ATI Mobility Radeon 4670.
  • 2 HDD's in RAID, must be 7200RPM
In other words build yourself a good laptop like this or find one with the least crapware preinstalled from the above specs.

You can either find and fit the parts yourself or as I said look for a decent model. There should be some available.

17" are not portable. Look for a 15.6" Full HD model - should be less than 3kg with adaptor, possibly.

try for either a 13" or a 15", then just plug into a display when needed.
Heck, depending on what you need you could probably use a netbook with A Nvidia Ion chipset or a ULV Intel processor with dedicated graphics, then have an office set up with the necessary accessories.
just something to consider
Example:
Asus Eee with Ion: $484
2x2GB (4gb) ram kit: $90 (the specs say that this netbook can support 4gb)
Seagate 500gb 7200rpm 2.5 inch (I THINK that's what is inside the Asus): $108
slim lightscribe BD/DVD drive: $126
HP 20" display: $142
Logiteech wireless mouse/keyboard: $38
total: $988 (ish)
