Reviews for the Sager NP8850
Strictly from the outside, the NP8850 is a 1080p (1920 x 1080) laptop with a chiclet style keyboard, texture-buttons for the trackpad, a VERY smooth and near-seamlessly integrated trackpad (that's still hyper-sensitive), and the instant access buttons controlling Email, Web Surfing, and "Quiet Fan" mode.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480M:
Mobile Fermi GPU comparable to a lower-clocked desktop GTX 465. Due to the 100 Watt TDP (including board and memory), the GTX 480M is only suited for large laptops.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
