There's no duty fee buying a laptop from the U.S., just your typical tax (GST), and shipping cost so you could get it from bestbuy.com. Lowest I saw in Canada is $1100 for this model (Memoryexpress, Amazon, and Bestbuy all have it at this price).

edit; looks like Bestbuy.com doesn't ship to Canada :/

Damn, also looking at the UX31 zenbook prime for 1100. Seems like a good price for 1080p. I`m seeing a lot of people complaining about the palm recognition on the touchpad?

Have a look at it, I bought an Asus 1215n has my portable ultrabook capable of some light movies and it also plays League of Legends, Skyrim and other light games.
But if I could go back in time I'd spend my money on the one I linked above.

OP, I can't speak on palm recognition issues but if you set PalmCheck to maximum in the touchpad driver panel, 99% of palm issues will go away - speaking in general for laptop touchpads, specifically Synaptic-brand touchpads. Now if your fingertips are huge (not sure how huge - maybe if you're 6'10 or taller), it might have issues recognizing something so big.

About 1.4" thick, 3.75 pounds. Not even close on thickness, and weight is 0.5 pounds too heavy for Ultrabook spec.

Comparing the performance to the performance of those you guys linked... Plus its cheaper and smaller.
But btw, I never claimed it to be a ultrabook. I was talking about my 1215n, go ahead and read what I said correctly this time. rolleyes.gif

OP, the Spectre XT looks pretty nice. I'd double-check that that model has a 1080p panel though - for some reason almost every review model has a 768p panel. The 15" Spectre XT Touchsmart does have a 1080p IPS panel for sure, though. http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/13/hp-envy-spectre-xt-review/

Wait, so why link to something that's not an Ultrabook? Asus 1215N isn't an ultrabook either. So I'm not quite sure what you're getting at. And then there's the issue of OP looking for a high-res system "preferably 1080p", from the OP. Maybe offer relevant suggestions next time and don't get so defensive.
