I'm about to purchase the 17" Sager 8295 or MYTHLOGIC Nyx 1713 Chassis (Clevo P177SM)
... use to be the 8290 see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kt4JbHFfNdc
for $1713.00 from Mythlogic (desktop replacement)
Plenty of gaming power with stock options already on board. No need to overclock. Might add an ssd for faster boots and running programs.
The Youtube video for the 8290 is running the GTX 780 4g as the GPU. GTX770 3g is plenty to play the games at 1080. I don't need to see the pores and sweat on character faces crystal clear.
Really nice lighted key display...the letters light up rather than the entire edge flooding out with led light.
After extensive tinkering configs on Xotic, Maingear, with MSI, Sagers,etc and some other sites I have decided to go with Mythlogic.
Good thing about Mythlogic is they are taking out all the the customization confusion (Diamond Thermal compound..overclock cpu, overclock gpu, charge me xtra for windows 7, charge me xtra for white glove packing, no xtra charge for rush production, xtra this, xtra that and on and on and on.) ALL xtra $$$$$$$ and confusing.
***With Laptops- Always get the the extended warranty 2yrs min and 3yrs max***
Besides...Mythlogic seems to be a more quiet laid back steady as she goes atmosphere and not a fast furious sweatshop where the entire staff is jacked and cracked up on Monster and Red Bull drinks with team leaders cracking whips everywhere.
10-15 day arrival time from purchase date to your door.
