  2. Hi, I actually came upon the Sager NP8150 myself while doing a quick search myself. I customized to to my liking, all came in at around $1750 and at 15.6". I purchased it directly from the Sager website. The computer hasn't actually arrived yet, it should come during the week, but I would recommend Sager for anyone looking for a custom laptop with specific needs! Thanks for the reply.
