Getting a new lappy

I've DESPERATELY needed a new computer for a while. I originally wanted something with good battery life because I'll be toting this thing around. But then I thought, hey, a good GPU would be nice to have.

Settled on a Sager NP5165, specs are:
  • Display 15.6" FHD 16:9 "Matte Type" Super Clear Ultra Bright LED Anti-Glare Screen w/ 95% NTSC Color Gamut (1920x1080)
  • Processor 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-2670QM, 2.2-3.1GHz, (32nm, 6MB L3 cache)
  • Graphics Video Card nVidia GT 555M 2048MB PCI-Express GDDR3 DX11 with Optimus™ Technology
  • Wireless Network Intel® Advanced-N 6230 - 802.11A/B/G/N Wireless LAN Module + Bluetooth
  • Ram 8GB - DDR3 1333MHz Dual Channel Memory

Here's a link to the beast:

Bought the RAM myself and just stuck with 1333 Mhz to save a little on the price. All-in-all it cost around $1100! Very happy. Just waiting for it to get here.

Re: Getting a new lappy

Mmmm...thats a beast.I never heard of Sager though. Japan? I know your back in the States though. The Core i7 I have and its amazing...and the Intel 3000 is perfect to save some battery life and then I kick in the dedicated when needed.

Sager uses chassis from Clevo, who used to supply Alienware before Dell bought them. They focus on hardware, not flash. That's why I was able to pack in awesome specs for less than $1100. I did find a nice Asus for around $1200 with similar specs, but the keyboard was horrid, and it didn't have a matte screen like this Sager will.
