High Performance Laptop - (using FAQ)

Sorry, I just saw the FAQ guide


1_What is your budget?
I guess around $1500.
But, this is loose.
I would prefer to pay less, but may be willing to slightly more.

2_What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
15" screen

3_What screen resolution do you want?
I will use the laptop all day, so the best screen resolution would be great.


4_Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
Portable, but I need high performance. I also have a desktop.

5_How much battery life do you need?
It would be nice to have more than 2 hours of battery life. I guess I will generally be able to plug it in. But, it would be nice to be able to watch a movie or something.

6_Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)?
I don't play any games.

7_What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo / Video editing,watching movies, Etc.)
I use it for photos, videos, watching movies, but most of all, I use it for solving mathematical models in C++ and Fortran, so I need high performance.

8_How much storage (H.D.D Capacity) do you need?
I have a desktop also, so the size is not that important. I guess it would be nice to have a couple hundred GB, but this is not important.

9_If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    You can get Sager laptops from other retailers like Xoticpc,which have great prices and also a good support
    Sager NP5125 is a great choice

  2. Hey Maziar,
    Thanks a lot for the recommendation. That website has awesome prices. I just have one more question.

    The best processor that you can get with the Sager NP5125 is the Core i7 620M. Do you think there is a big loss in performance between that and the Core i7 720 QM. This is the next step up quad core. That is basically the other one that I was looking at. But the price is right on the Sager NP5125. Thanks a lot for your help.
  3. For your tasks, a dual core suffices, it even performs better in non multi-threaded apps because it has a faster clock speed.
