The laptop you're looking for, is it going to only be used for gaming? XoticPC.com has some awesome gaming laptops (including Sager) and they do ship to Canada. Does the processor matter much to you or are you only focusing on the GPU? Also, what about screen size?

I just bought a Samsung Series 7 Chronos 15" with a Core i7 3635QM, 8gb RAM, 1 TB HDD with ExpressCache (hybrid drive) and GT640m, and I'm able to play BF3 and Skyrim on my HDTV without any trouble. Set me back about $900.

I personally would go for the Sager NP9130 from XoticPC.com. There is an upgrade for a free GTX 670MX and it'll set you back around $1,100 after everything. It's definitely worth the added $100. The 670MX is leagues better than the 660M.

Best sup 1000$~ laptop you can buy!

And please dont buy the SLI 650m as an overclocked GTX660m can match it with out the SLI problems !

yeah that 9130 from sager with the free 670mx upgrade is a no brainer.

oh a side note- look out for lenovo weekly deals.. you might end up saving 140 bucks or so.

I'm typing on my Lenovo Y480 (one step down) and it's been great. I just used it with Steam Big Picture to play Renegade Ops with my roommate on our big-screen. (It's a DirectX 10-only game with lots of great eye candy)
Does XoticPC require that you buy and install Windows yourself? I know it might be nice to avoid all the crapware manufacturers put on, but some people may not want to be bothered.

there are a lot of options:
1-Leave the Sager windows.
2-Xotic pc will install the windows with everyting.
3-Xotic pc will install windows with nothing but the drivers.
4-You get the windows DVD and install it your self.
5-No windows with the machine and you do what ever you want.

You want a notebook for a $1000? What are you planning to do on your notebook? Are you planning to play graphic intensive games, watch HD movies, surf the Internet, for school purposes? It really depends on what you want to use it for, otherwise you'll be just wasting your money. If you plan to carry it around, then the size of your notebook matters do you want a 14", 15.6" (standard size), 17"? In terms of brand, I recommend ASUS, HP, Acer and Toshiba. Sony is over-priced. I don't know about the quality of Dell systems. Here is a list of very powerful notebooks that you can purchase for $1000:
