Filmmaking workshop:
You can get similar laptops on Amazon: and Amazon UK
The exact model I purchased is MSI GE72 2QF-247US Apache Pro Laptop 17.3-Inch, which you can buy on Amazon Canada
I highly recommend getting a cooling pad:
Upgrade the hardrive to a SSD:

The exact specs of my new laptop are as follows:
MSI GE72 2QF-247US Apache Pro
Intel Core i7-5700HQ @ 2.70GHz
Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M, 3GB GDDR5
12 GB of RAM (DDR3)
1TB hard drive (7200 RPM)
17.3” HD screen
Windows 10

Here are a few options on Amazon USA and Amazon UK that are a bit better – they all have 16GB RAM (as opposed to 12GB); they have the same GPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M (I strongly recommend you don’t get anything less; and GTX980M is still very expensive); the CPU is the same (i7-5700HQ) or one generation newer (i7-6700HQ; this one is actually a bit less powerful than the 5th gen. CPU – but it is more energy-efficient; uses less battery); and some of the models have a SSD, in addition to a HDD.
