1. You may have noticed things look a little different around here - we've switched to a new platform (XenForo) and have some new forum styles and features. This how-to guide will help you find your way around. If you find anything that looks strange, post it in this thread.

    Depends on the resellers, and what they can do. Some resellers resell Sager's directly and some people take clevo shells and then put their own parts and other stuff onto them (like we do). So take a look around. There will be little differences between them all, just depending on what you are looking for.

    Does anybody know how the 540m compares to a Mobility Radeon 6570? Debating whether I should get this instead of an HP Pavilion dv6.

    Performance wise I would say they are pretty close as the 6570 is a rebadged 5770M series video. Don't have concrete numbers on hand, but I would say they would be within 10% of eachother, trading performance numbers back and forth.

    My 8130 arrives Wednesday, after looking at the specs of this one + battery and weight I think I should've waited. Primarily photoshop computer no plan on gaming.

    All AC Adapters are called bricks, it is just a matter of what size the brick is.

    The Sager NP5160 uses a 90W AC Adapter, which is about as small as they come when you have a discrete video card.

    Other models with higher end discrete cards will have AC Adapters that are up to 300W...now that's a brick!

    Is it wiser to buy it now with 2nd gen SB quad core processor or wait till 20th Feb'11 for a refresh/option with dual core 2nd gen SB processor ? The earlier quads were generating more heat than their dual core counterparts and, but no idea about 2nd gen i5/i7 processors. Please suggest.
