  1. Cloudy2010, that laptop you found was out of stock according to Newegg.com ....

    Similar laptop, decent battery life, costs 749 USD.
    Battery life runs at 4.5 according to mnf, probably in reality around 3.5

    If those don't work, I'll post a few more once I find them :)
  2. Looking good so far. Anyone have experience with these Sager laptops? They have a few around my price range with pretty good specs.
  3. Sager notebooks have a very good reputation, I'd either go with what I found, or depending on the specs of the Sager you found, I'd 100% vote for that.
