Identity is exactly right. What the quote doesn't show is the -$100, malibal didn't take it off until the very end.

I know it is more, but the cost is worth the beastly jump in performance.

6990m Crossfire Benchmarks.

A little more [$2,164/$2,100 "cash"]

http://www.xoticpc.com/custom-gaming-laptops-notebooks-clevo-sager-notebooks-ct-95_51_162.html



EDIT: Sager has the $100 off promotion and free shipping along with the same price, so it would $2064. $64 over isn't too much for such a jump over the single GPU.

Plus, an 18" pizza box is not as useful when he connects it to television sets anyway. Looks like you had a good pic OP biggrin.gif

I'm the same way at the moment and there's no reason to not get at least a two year warranty with a $2,000 laptop. If I can manage a three year warranty, I will but for that machine, I don't think it's possible what with the three year choice being $250 alone.

As far as I am told, getting the Sager NP8170 or Malibal Satori P170HM would be your best bet. Same machine really, but the Malibal retailer sells it for a bit more reasonable price. Not to mention if you have your own copy of Windows, they have the option of not including it however they will include driver install CDs regardless.

I would say grab just a 17" machine as CrossfireX and SLI in laptops is sketchy at best. That and the 6990M overclocks to 900mhz pretty easily since it runs at 1.1v at stock. So in a way, they're underclocked for your overclocking pleasure. biggrin.gif

Here's an example of a wicked laptop from the NBR forums:

Malibal Satori P170HM
2760QM 2.4-3.5ghz, 8GB HyperX 1600, 120GB HyperX 6gb/s, HD 6990M 850/1125, 1080p

That was around $2,000 with a two year warranty. tongue.gif

Wow that's impressive. From my research the 6990m is a 6870, I just can't fins what the 580m is equal too.
