    Mr Mysterious, thanks for the tips.
    I too want to take good care of my new notebook and keep it by my side for years.

    I do use my actual notebook intensively on work and leisure, but this with sandy bridge should handle most things I do much easily. I do not play games very often, but I would like to enjoy its capabilities from time to time and maybe after a while I'll let that aside.

    My problem is that, If I choose to have IC Diamond thermal compound, I'll have to give up a better overall configuration...
    Given that the sandy bridges are a little cooler than the last generation, I'm falling for the better configuration... but still would like some thought on it, as I don't know those Clevo machines and neither have experience with i7s...

    I would try calling the seller and asking them if its an option. There's a chance since its the 27, that the ic might be stock. (That's the case with xotic)

    All our machines come with IC7 on them, for no additional charge, so you don't have to sacrifice config for some IC Diamond =)

    I'll try to find that out. It is possible since the reseller does have a good fame and they do use good components. I expect them to use a good thermal compound, but maybe not this one that is 'better'.

    So you ship one to Brazil? Ah, the taxes could get to nearly 100% of the declared value... :p
    Believe, I would like to get one of yours Matte screens. But around here we don't have much options.


    But simplifying the question: would you say that IC7 is a critical point to choose a Clevo W150HNQ notebook with the 2720QM?

    Hey,

    We've had someone from down there just fly up here and pick it up, it was cheaper and they wouldn't have to "help" it though customs, we're 20 min from Detroit Metro so it was no biggie lol.

    But in all seriousness, None of the Sandy Bridge procs run THAT hot in a laptop for it to be required, however, as we know heat is the #1 killer of laptops. So we always recommend using or at least something better than stock, for the simple reason of cooler stuff means it'll last that much longer.

    Hey McGooble~ Thanks for the input. I guess I will just wait for the laptop to be in stock first, then decide if I should pull the trigger on either NP5160 or NP8130. I've never own or seen a Sager/Clevo laptop before, but they do seem like a fine laptop. :p

    Got a question for the resellers:

    If I had a Momentus XT 500 and shipped it to you guys, what would be my options in terms of the pricing in order to have it installed into my 5160? (Yes, I've decided to buy this beauty, but not until I have saved up the funds)

    I think it would be fair to offer me a slightly lower price than a fully configured machine with a 320GB HDD in there, since I'm saving you a HDD in the first place and only inputting a much better hybrid HDD in there. What do you think?

    +1 I've the Seagate Momentus XT 500 too, and would like to know if the overall price would be cheaper without a HDD.

    Yea we can do that, if you have parts that you want in your laptop that you already own or get on some crazy shellshocker thats no problem. Just shoot me a PM, we don't charge for the service just need to get it to us, other people have done that. The only caveat is we don't warranty your own parts, but besides that yea hardware, OS's, other software no biggie send it on in =)

    Yeah that's fine mythlogic....you didn't answer my other question, which was how would the price change? You wouldn't charge for the service (and thank you for that) but would you be able to lower the price since I'm saving you an HDD?

    Oh and don't worry about the warranty...the Momentus XT is barely a week old, never opened, still in it's original packaging and a completely blank and bare drive. It should be fine.

    They should, other resellers save you $40 when pulling out the HDD, and that was for the P150HM barebones with the 320GB base.

    Yeah, I ordered it January 18th. It's been a long wait, but I was probably pretty near the front of the queue. No tracking number e-mailed to me this morning, so it should be shipping out tonight.

    Ordered my NP5160 directly from Sager. Today got a call stating that they have systems in and will ship mine next week!

    FYI I ordered on 1/27.
