isplay: 17-inch WUXGA (1920x1200) Glossy Widescreen
DUAL NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTX in SLi Mode w/1,024MB
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz Processor w/6M L2 Cache - 1,333MHz FSB

Crysis:
could not figure out why the Windows XP setup refused to give good FPS results in this game, but it is clearly a software issue as in all other games XP and Vista had extremely similar results. Nevertheless, the Crysis performance in Vista was absolutely astonishing; it really does take dual 8800M-GTX graphics cards to drive this game at a 1920x1200 resolution. The game was a joy to play at such a high resolution and FPS.

Conclusion:

The system performance of the Sager NP9262 is truly desktop-like. Overall system performance was astonishing thanks to the desktop processor, 4GB of fast DDR2-800 RAM (most laptops have 667MHz), and a super-fast RAID 0 hard disk array. Its gaming performance easily bests that of any notebook we have tested; not even Crysis could slow this monster down.


Although i dont care about 3DMARK 06 but 13759 is very good for a lapotp :)  but as i said its not important for me the gaming is more important :D 

Wow very good results for a laptop in almost all games XP performed better but in VISTA Crysis did better and it has a very good results
1920x1200 with everything @ high the average is 34.7 which is incredible IMO

Very niice.

I've had mine for 5 months now, and really it does beat the living daylights out of any laptop and the majority of desktops.

My only complaint is the fact that it gets so bloody hot.

Thought I'd hate laptops my entire life, but I'll love this one till the day it dies.

Maz,

Who did you buy it thru? And your 3d Mark score is very nice.

Im looking at buying a 5793 this summer if I can get the bucks together.
May 3, 2008 1:41:48 AM

Very nice, remember my old 2003 Sage with 128 md vram, was I the stuff!

Wonder why with everything else macked out, they chose 5400 vs 7200 rpm drives... strange, cause it aint for the power savings on that beast!

Enjoy.

Having owned mine for almost a year now, I have absolutely no complaints. It has a decent warranty (I only got the 1 year, but it comes with a 3 year). Build quality is excellent. The laptop is still rock solid after heavy college use and nearly 24/7 use. I would definitely buy again (maybe from a different reseller though).

How does it fair on games?

The one i have is the predecessor to the 5793, so it's a little weaker performance wise. I am a huge fan of the Call of Duty series and it's about all I play. COD4 runs at 1600x1200 at a very playable 50FPS(my guess of the avg). COD2 plays at a whopping 1920x1200 at 75-100FPS. I think my CPU is a little on the weak side, but considering it's a laptop, it still packs a punch. I also played BF2142 for a time at 1600x1200 and it played well.


(COD2 and COD4 are based off of online gameplay while BF2142 was singleplayer)

You have a very good config :) 
7950GTX is a very good card IMO, its the 3rd fastest cards
8800MGTX>8800MGTS>7950GTX>8700MGT.......

Yeah, it rocks. I think if I had the choice I would have bumped my CPU up to the T7600. But as it stands, that would cost me about $600 which I refuse to pay. lol

Freaking double post. I blame THG's incredibly slow site.

yeah i have alot of these double post problems too :( 
btw i dont think the extra 300MHZ of T7600 would make a noticeable difference
May 3, 2008 9:23:57 PM

I OC'ed my T7400 up to T7600 levels. I don't really see much of a tangible difference in real world apps, though synthetics upped by a bit. Then again, I don't do much encoding or CPU heavy apps...I think CAD modelling is GPU heavy, not CPU.

I just recently had my NP9261 upgraded to the 9262, they had the offer to replace the motherboard and put in the two new 8800M GTX cards. I had dropped my laptop (I really felt like crying as I watched it fall) and had to have the screen replaced ($575 cough... cough... for the 1900x1200 screen), and I had them do the upgrade while it was in the shop. The service department at Sager is beyond helpful and great to work with.

Originally it ran crysis decently well at med levels at 1280x1024, not the best but that was also using the 8700M videos cards. Here in a few days I'll beable to test out Crysis again with the new cards installed seeing as the disk for it is in Iraq and I'm in California. Oh the anticipation.

Its an absolutely wonderful laptop, besides the heat and weight which suck but are not detrimental. And why would you care if you bought something like this. It's all or nothing in the world of kick ass laptops.

1900x1200 WUXGA display
Q6700 Intel Core 2
4gigs 800mhz ram
2x Nvidia 8800M GTX 1024mb in SLI
Panasonic UJ220 Blu-Ray recorder
2x 160gb 7200rpm serial ata 300 disk drives in Raid 0

This baby screams (literally if it starts getting really hot) speed wise. Just be wary of the setup I got cost me $4100 when I first bought it. Its about the same price now and so worth it. And feel lucky you won't have to pay the $1600 for the upgrade! They didn't really warn anyone that they were releasing the 8800M GTX until a couple weeks after I got mine ugh.

I've spent way too much on it, but I wouldn't recommend anything else. Much better than hauling a desktop back and forth to Iraq with me.
May 4, 2008 3:47:17 AM

Complete waste of money. If you want to game then do it on a desktop, way cheaper. The thing ways 12 pounds, a mid tower wouldn't weigh a whole lot more.
May 4, 2008 3:54:19 AM

For that money you could build a desktop for gaming and get a laptop for mobile needs.
May 4, 2008 4:20:35 AM

Pricewise there's no way a gaming laptop would be practical for me (minimum wage at a convienient store!), and I don't travel a whole lot. As it stands I'm satisfied with my PC

But, if someone say... offered me that laptop for say $100 I'd totally snag it!

I dont agree with njalterio and roadrunner 197069 (I dont say they are wrong its their ideas but i have a difference idea :)  )

Because SAGER NP2962 story is differenceIMO, its truly a desktop replacement u can carry it where u go, also the price is expensive but its completely worth it IMO because it has DESKTOP CPU + SLI +3x HDD

NJ and roadrunner: you forget that for some, a desktop is just not practical. Some people need the ability to take a PC with them when they travel or use it for work. I know people who use powerful laptops only because they are on the road 5 out of 7 days and enjoy having the ability to play games in their downtime.

I'm with Maz on this one. I'm not saying that you are wrong, but there are certain situations where desktops just aren't useful.
May 5, 2008 12:25:29 AM

Also, yes, a light mid tower may weight about as much, but that doesn't factor in any speakers, keyboards, monitors, mice etc. I use a laptop because it's everything I need in one package, which means a quick setup when I have to move locations.

I also agree. I've been using desktops all my life, had a few laptops here and there, but I've been really frustrated with them all. They were all underpowered, bad battery life, lots of failures. I do a lot of shows and movies, dances, recordings, and of course lan parties, and I need to take my PC with me a lot. Hauling my desktop around, plus one (or two) monitors is a pain, and it's a pain to set it back up when i get home, rewiring it to make it look decent around my desk and putting back up my ze5300e speakers. (not that that will change with a laptop)
Add that up, and consider I'm going away to college, a laptop is a must. I'm still taking my desktop to school, but it'll stay in my dorm...it's my backup pc, along with my tv. I gladly paid $2500 for the ability to take my top machine everywhere. I've been wanting a $1200 desktop config for a while, but when I considered all this, I just dropped it.

Also, hardware doesn't change in the mobile arena as fast as it does in the desktop arena. Top-of-the-line stays so just a bit longer. How long after the 8800 release was it before we saw a glimpse of the 8800m GTX?

maybe after 6 months the new Geforce 9 series will come out but i dont think the difference will be alot (like 8800GTX VS 9800GTX)

also laptops doesnt have alot of problems that desktops have, i may get the mighty NP9262 and give my desktop to my sister if i can go to university in this year( going to university is very difficult in IRAN, u have 2 read 30 books in 9 months and compete with about 400000-500000 people )
May 5, 2008 7:52:56 AM

WOW! I must have one for my own! IMO, this is well worth the money...for someone that spends half his life in hotels like I do and still want to game. Especially with Left4Dead coming out...this would be perfect!
