Wow I didn't expect so many comments on style, ha. This is overclock.net, not a Mac forum lol. Well anyway, I think both look cool. I've always wanted a Thinkpad, so the Sager style appeals to me at least.
Anyway, the deal breaker for me with Asus is the lack of options for matte screens on the lighter models. I want something less than 6 pounds basically. The 5165 seems to meet my needs quite well.
A couple of questions though.
1. Do those anti-glare screen protectors make a substantial difference, ie can they make a glossy screen function like a matte (long shot I guess, but doesn't hurt to try!)
2. Are there any other laptops out there with 15" screens with similar power to 5165 at less than 6 pounds?
3. I am mainly interested in playing Starcraft II on this thing. Supposedly the 555m is worse than the 6770m for this game, though the 555 performs better overall. Is this true? Are there laptops with the 6770m with similar specs to the 5165?
Thanks...Maybe I should make a new thread?
