Update: You can also get this Microsoft Surface Book with 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD for only $999.97 from Costco. You'll need a Costco membership and sign-in for this one, but that's about $400-500 off the price compared to other retailers like Amazon. It comes bundled with a Surface Dock.
Costco has the ASUS ZenBook UX430UQ ultrabook down to $999.99. This is the best price on this laptop model anywhere, and beats Amazon and Newegg by almost $300. There's an additional $15 shipping charge if you order online, but you can avoid that if you get it in-store.
The UX430UQ is loaded with a Core i7 processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM, a 512GB SSD, and technically two graphics cards (the integrated Intel HD graphics and the NVIDIA GeForce 940MX with 2GB VRAM). It has a 14-inch screen with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution plus a backlit keyboard and the Windows 10 64-bit operating system.
Costco is also offering a free year subscription to McAfee Multi-Access antivirus software, which is about a $30 value, that will be emailed to you after purchase.
This laptop is powerful enough to do pretty much anything you want it to do, unless you're into extreme video gaming or video editing. The graphics card only offers moderate improvement over the integrated chip, but with everything else this laptop has, there's little you can do to slow it down.
