Click customize.

Despite having a lot better cpu and better gpu than what you originally said, this laptop will remain cool as it has a separate cooling system for both the cpu and gpu, plus optimus and the fact sandy bridge cpus stay cool.

But since it has a sandy bridge cpu you wont be able to buy it till they ship out the new motherboard chips, which is in march
I've never heard of Sager but that laptop is awesome!

Long story short is, sager builds custom laptops, sells them themselves and through resellers (buying from a reseller is always better), when you order from your reseller orders them from sager and it is assembled there, some of the resellers will build it in their shops allowing greater customization (like mythlogic) They are a quality brand despite their unfamiliar name.

+1 on this. Believe me this guy knows his stuff. Sager is a great choice if not the best. Im going with the 5160 for performance to battery life ratio, thanks to optimus.

I highly recommend this. Ive been looking around for a bit and this is my choice.

An OS is not included at $850 the op is probably looking at $1000 easy. The optimus is appealing though and it does look nice. I'm curious what the true battery-life is going to be with these new cpus. I've read some sites claiming 25% improvement. I'm more interested in the i3/i5 supposedly they were going to launch on the 20th. Now if Sager had an optimus model with those I'd be interested.

battery life is expected around 3-5hrs in the 5160, while the 8130 drops down to 2-3. Id imagine that an i3 or i5 would make that even better, but it also depends on the upgrades one applies to these laptops.
