Ok, so a little update.
Sager's sales person that I interacted with is a very cool folk (email only, though) and notified me that I got lucky, cause they got new Intel CPUs for the notebook type I picked.
So, here's the detail of what I got:
- 15.6" chassis with 1080p glossy display
- nVidia GeForce GTX 675M w/2GB (a Fermi; the MX'es won't arrive till next month or something)
- i7 3630QM (up from a 3610QM for free; it's a 100Mhz base speed bump)
- 2x4GB DDR3 1600
- 500GB HDD + docking bay with a 500GB HDD (instead of the ODD)
- free ground shipping with UPS.
All that for US$1,540.60.
I'd say it's a steal. Now, the only "problem" for me was the Wire Transfer; they don't accept credit cards. Since I'm not from the USA, I've been very complicated, lol. So for folks outside the USA, I'd talk with a friend there that has an account or think about the extra fees of making an international bank transfer.
Once it arrives, I'll do a quick bench and post it in the sticky.
