Thoughts / Opinions on my proposed Sager Laptop from Xotic PC

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well as the topic suggests I am looking for feedback on my proposed new laptop.


EDIT: Link didn't show changes, I will list my proposed changes and resulting price.

CPU: 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-2670QM, 2.2-3.1GHz, (32nm, 6MB L3 cache)

GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD6990 2048MB PCI-Express GDDR5 DX11

RAM: 12GB - DDR3 1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (3 SODIMMS)

Primary Hard Drive: 750GB 7200RPM (Serial-ATA II 300 - 16MB Cache)*
*Only HD I selected, I figured I would use a External HD for any cache folder I would need for photoshop or video editing.

WIFI: Intel® Advanced-N 6230 - 802.11A/B/G/N Wireless LAN Module + Bluetooth

OS: ~Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Installed (64&32-Bit CD Included)

Warranty: Sager 3 Year Parts & LIFETIME Ltd Labor Warranty w/ Lifetime 24/7 DOMESTIC Toll Free Customer Support - Special!

Total Cost: $1,798.00


I'm looking for this laptop to do accomplish a couple things:

1) Play World of Warcraft: I would like it to be able to perform under any aspect of the game WITH mods installed and running.

2) Starcraft 2: same thing, I want it to be able to play the game and at an acceptable resolution and frame rate.

3) Photoshop editing

4) Perhaps some LIGHT video editing from time to time.

Budget: I would prefer to keep it very close to what it is now. But I am flexible on both brand and purchase location. (I live in the United States).


Also, this the first time I have shopped both a Sager branded laptop and from Xotic PC. I chose them because I have seen both names mentioned in this forum quite a bit. I take that to assume both are trusted brands, am I correct in that assumption?

You're absolutely right, I just noticed that. Thanks for the heads up. I am going to edit my thread to show my proposed changes to the basic setup.

looks similar to my 8170 but i went with a different hard drive and more ram and then added my own SSD. you will love the 6990, way more bang for the buck than the 580M but i hear they might lower the price on the 580M so you might want to wait and see what happens.

Nvidia did lower the price. They slashed it to be just $75 more than the 6990M at retail prices now. If you want it now, go ahead. Looks solid really. You won't be disappointed from that computer. biggrin.gif

However, in the following months they might drop the prices down on the 580M just so you know.

Thanks for your input I am in kind of a rush to get this guy into my greedy little hands so I am probably just going to go with the 6990.
