Not to be rude, but your main issue will be that to get the same performance from a laptop as your desktop, you're looking at roughly double the price. I think you are better off setting your budget, then buying the best laptop within that budget.

Well I was looking at a Sager Laptop brand based on positive reviews from research gain from Google. But those come in $1400 or more for what i'm looking for. But if you know of other's that have better review's on Laptop brand's, Never ever will i Get a Ailenware laptop Friend had one on Finance, he could have bought himself a dam truck for what he got, Also His laptop was Kickass till Vents were filled with lent like a dam clothes Dryer. Based Price $1600 could go more or less, Preferred Less more.

Edit:will go Nividia mobile for this laptop, seems a safe bet.

Eurocom or Sager.

In the coming weeks, we'll actually be reviewing a Sager. It comes from these guys: Reflex Notebook Canada - Your Source for Sager Notebooks and Laptops in Canada . I believe they're the only guys in Canada that direct-ship Sager notebooks.

This one should be almost exactly what you're looking for: Reflexnotebook.ca is your Source for the Sager NP9130 (Clevo P151EM1) in Canada

GTX 670MX (note: choose the "MX" version as it uses the new Kepler architecture)
1080P Screen
i7-3630QM processor
8GB memory
750GB HDD

All for under $1200.

If you need Windows installed, there will be a small surcharge but you should still be able to transfer your existing license.

I would also add the Canada-based RMA option which costs only $77.

I wish I had noticed that Reflex Notebook site before. Those are pretty reasonable prices and it's nice to have a Canadian company to get them from. Would have probably grabbed a clevo instead of my G75. Not that I'm not happy with it, but damn, a G680M.....

I especially like the fact that the basic build is sans OS rather than the standard OEM bloatware OS we get on most laptops.

What's so special about Sager notebooks? I know they're like European only, but is there a reason why?

Sager notebooks have great price performance and good cooling designs. They also are not European only... XMG is european only.
