SAGER NP8120 is currently the fastest notebook available but Alienware will soon let users choose 2 HD 5870Ms in M17x which makes it faster than the SAGER one,but if you can't wait then go for NP8120,its an excellent choice.

Thank you. Wow fast response. This forum rocks another question if I can.

Found a 17 inch SAGER Sager 9280 with the following processor:

Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition | 3.60GHz | 12MB Intel Smart Cache - 6 Cores/12 Threads


as opposed to the NP8120 with : 7-920XM Extreme (2.0~3.2GHz, 55W) w/8M L3 Cache - 10Gb/s DMI I/O BUS

Which is ultimately faster? The Sager 9280 processor has more cores and more cache but does not have SLI capability?

The 9280 will be faster if you need CPU power. However, the faster CPU will not outweigh SLI graphics cards when it comes to gaming. Better GPUs come first when you are talking about gaming. Thus, the 8120 is better if you plan on mostly playing games.
