    Sweet, that has got to help on extending the battery life. Has anyone seen anything about the chassis (build material and texture) and how it handles cooling? Justin noted that the exterior surface was different, but I don't know what he was comparing it to.

    This laptop has everything I've been waiting for in specs, size, and weight, BUT why god why there is no option for a backlit keyboard?!
    Is there anyway of replacing the keyboards on these machines with a backlit one?

    A confirmed note:
    NP5160 & NP5170 both units will have about 4:30m to 5hr of battery life.:)

    I actually emailed about this, here is the response:

    "The motherboards on these new Sager units are all SATA II, so they will be 3 Gb/s as opposed to 6Gb/s. Unfortunately, I have yet to see a notebook machine with that SATA III capability."

    Who did you email?? I think they gave you bad information.

    Sandy Bridge supports SATA III 6Gb/s.

    I will also confirm battery life of 4:30 to 5 hours battery life while running on the IGP, with screen brightness lowered to a comfortable level.

    Oh...So the 4-5 hours is the IGP...Are there any battery life times for the system running on the 540M?

    I'm still interested in the 8150, but here in Australia its still listed as coming sometime in february/march and thats quite a bit of wait. Hence my interest in this system.

    It's kind of apples and oranges really...the 8150 boasting performance and what seems like a good 3 hours battery when working on apps using the GPU. Will be interested to see what kind of numbers this baby can notch up on the discrete 540M.

    The 6 series chipset PCU has port 0 and 1 configured as Sata 3 @ 6GB/s but ther other 4 are Sata 2 at the highest speed. Until someone can show a screen shot showing that Sager has configured the PCU on the right ports to support the higher speed then this is just speculation.

    I'm sure you meant to say HM65? Never seen or heard of a HM56.

    is it possible to have a sandy bridge cpu on the older HM55 the np5135 has?

    i know the ram is slower but still quad core i7 whould be a great improvement in performance compared to an i5 dual core.

    Unfortunately not. The intel compatibility list here seems to show only the older cpu set.

    No one needs to show a screen shot to confirm support for SATA III. In all Sager Sandy Bridge models, the HDD bays support SATA III, although the ODD bay does not.

    This is confirmed...it is not speculation. :)

    Thanks for pointing out this typo, it is HM65 fully supporting SATA III

    If this is “confirmed” then the resellers need to update the spec’s sections on their websites. This is something that a lot of people have been speculating on and asking questions about. It would even be a beneficial marketing tool.

    Looking at the spec's of the 6 series chipset's shows they do support the Sata III, but that does not guarantee it is implemented.

    If it’s published I would feel more confident this is the case versus taking someone’s word. That is the way that I am, nothing personal.

    Define "published"

    A Sager authorized reseller for over 12 years who has written confirmation from Sager's engineer, who then in writing in a public forum "publishes" that it is confirmed that ... well, you know the rest :)
