Quality: Asus Vs. Sager

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I know that Sager has the best price to performance out there, but I was wondering about build quality, I own a Asus laptop, and it seems to be fairly well built.

If it helps, the exact models I am wondering about are the Sager NP5165 and the ASUS U36SD-A1.

This is for college, but I'm used to carrying around a laptop that is thicker and heavier than the Sager, so I don't see that as a problem.

Thanks
bro

I would like to think that the sagers are built really well though I have never held one. I do know that the Asus feel really sturdy depending on the model that you are holding. I personally was tinkering with a G53 and it felt like it was built REALLY well. But man was it a pain to take apart!!! lol

Yeah same, I've never even felt a Sager, not many stores have them. I have experimented with many Asus laptops, and I rather like them. But I've heard good things about Sager, mainly here on OCN.

I own the Sager np5175 and it has a really solid case. The keyboard has absolutely no flex, though the keys are a bit noisy. It also never gets hot to the touch.

It only requires removing 5 screws to access the cpu, and replacing the thermal paste does not void the warranty.

What does "no flex" mean?

With some laptops if you press hard on the center of the keyboard (usually the g & h keys) the keyboard flexes inward a tiny bit. Having no flex at all is a good sign it's likely well built.
