The one disadvantage of the Sager / Clevo is battery life. Although users are reporting about 3 hours actually using the machine. You can also go the cash only route to cut 3% off. XoticPC also has free 8GB now too, so even with stock machine and Windows 7 (i7-2630QM, GTX 560m, 8GB DDR3 1333, DVDRW) is about $1200 cash price shipped. It also has four RAM slots so you can add 8GB more later for 16GB total if desired. Their +$95 matte screen upgrade is supposed to be phenomenal. I'll find out when I get mine! In the end with the HP coupons, a similarly equipped machine will run you about $200 less then the Sager, but that $200 will buy you a 50% faster performing GPU, easily serviceable machine, future RAM upgrades, and a better built machine IMHO. You can also buy a larger PSU later and install a higher TDP GPU like the 580m or 6990m.
