Asus G73SW-A1 vs. Sager NP8170 Tags: Asus Laptops Last response: April 9, 2011 7:28 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share saelan April 7, 2011 10:23:15 PM I'm looking at two laptops, Top choice: Asus G73SW-a1 Second choice: Sager Np8170 (customized upgrades for both would be 8gb 1333 ram, HDD's Seagate Hybrid's 500gb / 4gb flash) From a hardware standpoint they seem to be just about similar. I heard that the Asus G73 graphics card isn't upgradable. That may be an issue, won't consider that for now. Thoughts on which to go for?

Major difference seems to be that the Clevo model has many more upgrade otopns .... for example: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470M w/1.5GB GDDR5 [add $100.00] AMD Radeon HD 6970M w/2GB GDDR5 [add $245.00] NVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M w/2GB GDDR5 [add $495.00] NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M w/1GB GDDR3 [add $675.00] m 0 l saelan April 9, 2011 7:28:05 AM Thanks. I've contacted xoticpc for a pricematch. Though it ends up as $1803 for the Sager there. And it looks like its lower because they offer a cheaper $50 blu-ray. I'll probably be going with the Clevo 170hm build since I'll be able to upgrade that Gpu later in the year. Good advice. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
