    Like I said I'm seeking to replace a PowerSpec 1710, I have been looking at the Sager NP7877PQ-S (CLEVO NH77DPQ) and Sager NP8378F2-S (Clevo PB71DF2-G) which was apparently deleted off every site I was looking at while I was writing this. So I don't know what to make of that.

    I was reading in the owners lounges that the PB71DF2-G had a fan noise issue. Would the NH77DPQ be a good alternative especially given that I can't find the other anymore. Unless anyone has a better suggestion?
