Thank you all for the replies and links!
I'm really leaning towards shelling out an extra few hundred dollars for this Sager notebook.http://www.sagernotebook.com/index.php?page=product_info&model_name=NP8130
So far the total price before tax/shipping is $1,209. Are there any upgrades you guys would recommend to get on the NP8130?
Also, how long would you estimate this laptop lasts me? 4 years? More?
Thanks again! Feel free to post more laptops that you think would be suitable for me.
