Xoticpc has it for just under 800 without the OS, which if you go to a uni you can get much cheaper than retail or through an OEM

Sweet

still might juts wait a lil bit
im getting bf3 when it comes out
yes will be other side of world playing it lol on the laptop
im thinking that i might just go with a higher end one though just so it can be ready for it i saw that they easily can play bc2 and cod blackops but i saw the demo and played at hd 1080 on my xfired 5770 and dang it looks so clean
but i want to be able to play it who knows though i know i can play many games on laptops with lower settings
who knows though to many things to be coming out soon and near that time when bf3 comes out to really make a good decision now to be ready for mobile bf3 playing

540m is a low end gaming card, as this laptop was meant to be the most portable gaming option available from sager. If you plan on taking it everywhere and using the battery most of the time, and still being able to play games, then this is the laptop for you.

If you are looking for a desktop replacement/heavy gaming laptop, then get the 8130 with the 460m.

LCD resolution depends on what you're doing. If you want the laptop for mostly videos/web browsing/other stuff, get the 1920x1080 screen for $65 more. If you plan on doing little gaming, you should probably keep the screen as is, as the 1920x1080 screen will rape your 540m in games.

also you can save money by acquiring the OS yourself. Legit or not..
