Default Alienware or Sager??

Im an enthusiast, and Ive been looking to invest in a notebook with a great graphics card, but I dont want to have a 2 inch, 12 pound dinosaur that will last 1 hour. Ive ben debating between the Alienware m5500, m5700, and the Sager NP5720. I also want it to be able to run games like Doom 3, Half-Life 2, F.E.A.R., Far-Cry, and Unreal Tournament with no lag.

Well I have personally seen and used the alienware notebooks and they are quite bulky to say the least. But they do perform well so its merely a tradeoff. I don't know about Sager.

I think you guys are talking about the old alienwares, the 2 inch ones. The newest models are 1.66 inches.

if u are going to get an alienware then get the one on the left (area 51 m7700) it's the only one that will run those games.

Alienware. Once you said "enthusiast" it has to be Alienware.


Trust me it won't last one hour. And what do you mean by two inch? o.O"

the 6800 go will handle them somehow, but not with the best graphics & high reso.
Though then again u need to SLI 2 7800GTX to play FEAR well with all max and 1600x1200. (I don't think that laptops can go this high but still)

I also wanted Alienware because of their looks. Sager looks pretty cool, but the Alienware is just winning me over.
What do you think of the Sager?

*The only concern I have is that the Alienware will not run games as good as the Sager.

You can run almost any game at amazing settings with a 6800. The 7800 is just a step up, but you'll still get good performance with a 6800.

ABS is ok. Actually, although alienware is expensive but pretty good, voodoo labtops are also pretty nice, along with the new dell xps'. Either them or falcon...

I like Alienwares because I think they look better than most other brands, but I dont like their colors. Building a laptop would be really cool, but I dont know where to begin. I've also heard that if you screw up, you're screwed. Can you get cases that are different colors from a specific site?

Sager latops are nice. They're so slim and their top-of-the-line notebooks aren't as big as the Alienware ones.
