More about which laptop
  1. Both the MSI and Asus are good.

    I personally like the Asus laptop better.
  2. Yea I do like the design of the Asus the most. How about sager laptops? Anyone have experience with Sager? I was looking at the NP8150 or NP8130, but having delt with a different reseller/custom build company before I am a bit hesitant.
