    It's probably close to the same size as your NP9150 (can't find exact dimensions online any more), but if you want a true portable powerhouse, I would recommend the MSI 16L13/Eurocom Tornado F5. Desktop-class CPU, availability of a GTX 1070 or 1080 GPU, all the expansion slots you need, and it should be able to run Windows 7. Its portability is surprisingly good. The only real "problem" for me is the 330W power supply required by the GTX 1080. If you bumped down to a 1070, you may be able to get away with the smaller 230W unit.

    Since you're in Canada, you can buy directly from Eurocom, or hit up @woodzstack as he can do even more detailed customization to your exact needs.
    Tb5... and woodzstack like this.

    Eurocom also has the Sharp IGZO displays. I also like Woodz though. Maybe he can source the screen.
