The Best Laptop for 3D Modeling and Rendering?

I am in search for some of the best laptops made to do 3D Modeling, rendering and animation.
I learned my lesson on NOT researching enough 3 years ago, when I bought my Acer Aspire 5251. It was a BIG piece of junk. Fell apart piece by piece. Long story short, it died 3 days ago, by having the power jack blow out. It stopped working, most likely from overheating. We've spent hundreds of dollars in fixing it. It's gone now. It was definitely not the right laptop for rendering and 3d modeling either. I will NEVER use Acer again!
Now that it broke, I need a new laptop and the RIGHT laptop for the career I'm pursuing. I am going for video and game concentration in college. So I will be working with Autodesk 3D Max, Maya, Nuke, Adobe Flash, Photoshop, After Effects and more!
Those are all big programs that require tons of storage space, a lot of RAM, a good processor and the fitting graphics card.
What laptop out there is the best for 3D Modeling, Rendering, Animation, Photoshop, gaming and video?
I don't care what the price is! If I have to aim for $800-$1200,so be it! As long as it's a good brand, has a lot of hard drive space, lots of RAM, a good processor and a good graphics card.
I just want to get reliable, quick and smooth rendering and 3D Navigation.
What laptop do you people recommend me using for my career? I need a laptop badly in order to succeed in college!
Thank you for your time.
