    Seriously... Damn.. That site is hella nice go for that manufacture. I think i might sell my HP and get one of them lmao.
  3. Yeah XOTIC PC has a good repuation + good price + ships world wide
  4. I have a question...why would I get the Sager laptop from, instead of going just getting it from
  5. Also, does the Sager NP5793 have good built-in speakers?
  6. Pretty much no laptop is going to have good speakers. The one on my unit (the predecessor to the 5793) are decent but tend to be a bit tinny. It just comes with the territory.

    As for the Xotic vs, only because for whatever reason xotic is about $100 cheaper. Not sure why or how.
  7. Agreed^^

    The 1920 x 1200 screen is unbelievable.

    Of course, if you gonna go with one 8800 GTX, why not go with 2 in SLI ??? Or maybe 3 HD's in RAID 5 ?

    As for the speakers, I use the Logitech 5500's,en

Worried about what effect that was having on the sockets, I wanted to switch from the 3-4 wire options to the single cable S/PDIF. But no one including ANY of the Clevo distributors knew where to get a cable. I found one place:

    Here's the cable you need to go from "Laptop S/PDIF out" (3.5 mm) to "Speaker S/PDIF in" (RCA):
