Reviews for the Sager NP5797
Overall this is exactly the kind of machine I would love to have, if the cons I listed were changed that would be great however to put it in perspective, the unit staying relatively cool is almost certainly a result of engineering the ports to their locations, this also affects the noisiness, knowing that heat is the enemy I willingly accept these tradeoffs to have a machine which will still be running two or more years from now because it manages heat better than anything else I have ever used. The screen is big and awesome, I cant get over how nice it looks and how much more stuff I can see at once on it, I cant wait to get my new 24" ELO to pair them up. I already hooked it up to my big screen and its beyond awesome.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M:
The GeForce GTX 280M is based on the G92b chip with all 128 pipelines and, as a result, shares more similarities to the desktop 9800 GTX+ than the desktop GTX 280. Regardless, the high clock rate makes the GTX 280M considerably faster than the 9800M GTX.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Sager: Sager Midern Computer, Inc., is an OEM computer manufacturer specializing in laptop computers. The company is generally publicly referred to as Sager Notebook Computer.

In addition to selling physical hardware, Sager also offers complete support and repair services for all Clevo based Laptops. This service is offered even if the laptop was not ordered through Sager, although in that case the user must pay in full for all services provided. Although the company sells laptops via its own website, it also utilizes numerous resellers who sell the laptops with the Sager brand name. Sager Midern Computer, Inc. was founded in 1985 in California. Sager markets its products throughout all of the United States but hardly outside USA. Sager is only an online reseller, meaning it does not provide a physical store where consumers can make purchases. Sager currently employs approximately 50 workers in its office in CA.
