Best Windows 8 Laptop

I currently am using a half dead HP Envy 17 - 3D (1195ca/late '10), and it is time for an upgrade. I plan to steer clear from HP since, maybe it has just been bad luck for me but everything in this laptop but the screen and the USB ports have died on me despite me taking good care of it and it was sent in for repairs within the first four months to have the motherboard replaced. Enough about my poor dying laptop though, I'm looking for a laptop that can handle system heavy programs (autodesk and adobe software). Maybe something with a touchscreen, haven't had much time to play with the new windows 8 touch interface but it looks like it could be useful for some stuff. In short I am wanting a high end laptop that will most likely last more than this one has.
