    The first laptop is a bomb. BTW, don't buy from the 2nd website. Try amazon, Ebay.

    I wouldn't go for MSi brand, I find them too "cheap look" and same thing for the hardware. You can buy an Alienware laptop with that money.

    Whatever you do, do NOT buy an Alienware. As for MSi, they're pretty good, and I almost bought one. But, I went with a Sager NP9150 instead. It's a powerhouse, and plays pretty much any game at max settings with 60 FPS (including Battlefield 3, Skyrim, etc.). And don't buy from those sites, they're overpriced. I bought mine from http://www.lpc-digital.com and it was a great price compared to other resellers.

    Thanks guys
    So it looks like these sager notebooks are kinda cool as a generic laptop...

    Weird though - i called tech support and someone answered and said "hello"
    hah
    i guess they're not a very big company yet

    http://www.sagernotebook.com/index.php?page=product_customed&model_name=NP7370


    Does anyone know the difference between getting an mSATA drive for HARD DRIVE 1, and getting an SSD drive for HARD DRIVE 1 ? ? ? ?

    They seem to offer both options...

    Why would you buy a 17" laptop? Buy a PC dude, then buy a iPad for mobile use.

    I recommend getting an msi, very strongly. They make durable, extremely good spec laptops. However what they lack in, is exterior durability and sometimes motherboard quality. Other than that, MSI all the way to the bank for me. All high spec laptops suck, but msi sucks the least i feel. Alienware can suck shit trough a straw

    @Tony
    Harddrive 1 is the one your OS boots of off, and you do most things. The secondary drive is used mostly as storage although you could use it for more then that.
