  1. Sager NP5125 is a great choice(better than both of those that you linked
  2. Well, the sager is a bit over my budget when you add a OS, which I need since I don't have an extra code lieing around.

    I did just find this on sale at newegg though:

    Would it be worth it?
  3. Best answer
    Yes that's also great and has a more powerful VGA than the Sager model i posted, the only downside is its CPU,but you can't get any better laptops(with a better or similar VGA)in your price range.
  4. Thanks for your help, I'll be ordering it later tonight unless someone else has any suggestions.
