  1. found some sager/clevo np8130 :)
  2. ah yes, i have seen it too at xoticpc. looks pretty good for the price.
    i considering it as my first option, was looking at asus first but started to hate the port placements on the laptop.

    now i just dont know how well sager/clevo brands are.
    been looking around and looks quite positive.

    not sure if anyone got experience, comment, on sager/clevo laptops.
    i might go for it then.
