Need a new dedicated graphics laptop

Hi everybody. Beginning October, I will start programming with CUDA and I'm looking for a new laptop with as good a graphics card as possible(Nvidia of course) with the price no more than $950-$1000. Additionally, Intel is a must. The rest is not that big of a deal. I've been looking around for a couple of weeks, but just can't decide what to get. Maybe the most obvious pick would be this one from Asus, but it has some negative reviews so I'm trying to get some advice from the best guys out there - you here. Thanks a bunch!

edit: I'm sorry for not putting the faq part into my post. Thought it wouldn't be necessary, but here it is:

1. What is your budget? < $1000

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering? 15,6"

3. What screen resolution do you want? As high as I can get. No less that 13XX.

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need? not much, even 320GB is fine.

    Actually never heard of Sager before today when I was searching through TH forums, so I'm kind of sceptic. Maybe Lenovo Y580?

    You really don't need a 1000$ for this.
    Do you know which version of Cuda you neeD?

    the newest i can get since it is a "scientific purpose" (actually it would serve to analyse and simulate protein interaction and that kind of stuff on a smaller scale). i mean, it's not that decisive (cuda version), it's just the fact that since I'm buying a new laptop, I wanna get something for the long term and not just cuda programming, although it is a priority.
