    Looks like us February people won't get theirs shipped until the end of next week if everything goes well. That's a bummer because it will be after my college break.

    Its better than what Sager originally predicted. March would have trickle shipments and shipments would stabilize after march, sometime in april.

    I have been in an e-mail exchange today with Josh. I am #2 on the list and they expect to have my shell in house early next week for build. I asked for pictures (shell and parts arrival, during build and testing) and will try to post as they come in.

    Be forewarned however, I have heard from super secret spies that the mythlogic guys like to build au natural so to speak, so these pictures are only meant for a mature audience :eek: :cool:

    Regards

    Mine's estimated date is April 18th. I guess Brazillian resellers are left to lower priority hhehehe

    As I said some pages back, i still have two options to get, from two different resellers. I got them for about the same price (actually the second is 2% cheaper :p)

    1. 2630QM, 4GB RAM, IC Diamond Thermal Paste and 2 years warranty

    2. 2720QM, 6GB RAM, "surprise" thermal compound and 3 years warranty

    On the other specs, both options are the same: Full HD screen, 500GB 7200 RPM HD, blue-ray reader, lame 42.84 Wh battery.

    I'm falling for the number two. Despite the surprise element, they have a good fame among clients (most are more game enthusiasts than I) and a very nice warranty. Also, I suppose I will not stress the CPU and GPU that much on my regular basis...

    What do you think?

    Wow definitely get the second option for 2% less unless the company is fishy.

    I only ordered a few days ago, but was told to expect my 1411/NP5160 by the end of the month. Other vendors were quoting early April. So while it sounds like Myth hasn't quite got their shells yet, they may be able to get through their orders faster... hopefully :cool:

    Thanks, mrPico.
    These company has a good reputation. I've been looking for references and almost everyone is pretty satisfied with their products/services.

    My original order date was either the 26th or 27th of January. I updated the order in late Feb to change SSD's - from the ocz vertex 2 to the newer corsair perf 3. Extra $150 that I believe over the long haul will be well worth the investment

    Since NewEgg hasn't restocked the refurbished G73 in a while (and it doesn't have a 1080p screen), I'm considering this.

    I've been seriously thinking about buying the HP ENVY 17 (Radeon HD 5850), but the problem I find with that is that the estimated shipping date is the very end of this month. So, I see this NP5160 but the date isn't known.

    If I ordered this, do you guys think it would arrive sooner than the HP? I'm just tired of trying to find a laptop for under $1100 that will play anything at a good framerate.

    We are expecting to start shipping this weeks orders on all Sager Models within approximately 10-12 business days. We are getting through orders quickly and should be current with orders very soon :D:D

    I think you'll get the Envy or the 5160 around the same time. Now if you are looking to game, I don't think the 5160's 540m graphics card can compete with an AMD 5850. If you plan on gaming more than actually working on your machine, I'd consider getting the Envy instead. If you need to work more on it and feel the SB processor upgrade would make that part of your life faster, then get the 5160.
