CyberpowerPC vs MSI vs Sager

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well my friends are having a debate over CPC, MSI, or Sager. the laptop will be used for gaming. what i need to know is if anyone has a laptop from CPC, msi, or sager and how the build quality is, how it performs, kinda like a review. WARRANTY DOES COUNT TOO!
We looking at these: http://www.sagernotebook.com/index.php?page=product_customed&model_name=NP5165

Sager is one of the few (6 or 7 total) companies that actually manufacture/build their own machines. Many brand names contract out to them. The build quality is very high on them as a result.

I've never handled a CyberPower laptop but from what I've read/heard they're run-of-the-mill designs. Same thing with MSI, until you hit their uber high-end line where build quality becomes very good.

Performance isn't going to change much between them if the components are similar; the screen though is about the only thing that will be a noticeable difference as none of them produce any of the components besides the screen (and sometimes, not even then).

Also, with any of these, replacement parts are going to be also exclusively through the vendor or eBay. I don't know of any OEM vendors for replacement parts for any of these three companies.


EDIT: Also, go to Xoticpc.com for Sager - much better pricing than any other retailer. I just got a 5165 from them with an i7 2670 and an 8GB RAM upgrade for the base price of the one you linked.

What TurboTurtle said, Xotic is way cheaper and better customer service. If you run into any issues w/ company sager is less responsive than if you do it through xotic

And for that budget, you could get a sager np8130 with better specs (2670QM, 750gb HDD, 8gb 1600 ram, intel 6300 wireless).

@OP: I'd say that you should go for a sager. The sagers that i've worked with have been pretty incredible in terms of build quality.

As for performance, I can't really say because that all depends on the machine's hardware configuration. I've worked with my friend's top-of-the-line Np8150 with a 2670QM, 6990m, 8gb 1866, intel 510 SSD, etc, and my other friends' base model 5165 and np8130.

I don't know what your budget is but a Sager 8150 with a 6990m would be nice (gtx580m with about the same performance but $300 more doesn't seem worth it). Or if that's to expensive I'd try to get a 8150 with a lower end graphics card instead of a 8130, the 8150 can handle more powerful cards.

Oh yeah, Sager doesn't make there own stuff, Clevo makes it.
Sager 8150=Clevo P150HM
8130=P150HM1M or something like that
