Sager offers a non-i7, SLI model notebook that's better than both (per say). Take a look at that.

Do Not Go With The Sager
Their support is a joke and after 2 years they are like HP they drop support and you cannot get replacement parts.
My Nvidia video card failed twice and now i can't replace it because it no longer manufactured and Sager has no replacements

I wasted 3,000.00

Sager sucks

huh, that's different than my experience. I found support to be easy to work with. I had a dead battery and a broken hinge on my 2 year old NP5760 which they had replacements for. And no offense, but it is not Sager's fault that NVidia stopped production on outdated hardware. Sorry for your bad experience.

@ puzzl3: I agree with frozenlead, take a look at the 18'' Sager that has dual GTX280's: http://www.sagernotebook.com/product_customed.php?pid=1...
