My System Specs

Default

This would be my first choice, but will be out of your budget a bit as its $1000 before taxes:
ASUS N53SV-A1, Notebook (Silver Aluminum) - Intel Core i7-2630QM, 15.6" HD (1366x768) LED-backlit, 4GB RAM, 750GB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M 1GB, DVD-RW, Wireless BGN, Bluetooth, 2M Webcam, USB 3.0, eSATA, B&O Icepower Audio, Windows 7 Home Premium

Asus (2 year warranty with Canadian depot), geforce video, and a Sandy bridge chip with the AVX extensions that will come in handy for video transcoding work you might do in your program.

Otherwise, I would pick a slightly lower priced i5 Asus laptop with a dedicated GOU...take a look at The Canada Computers site I have linked you. Gotta love that 2 year warranty...
