I am not exactly sure what the purpose of this post is other than to display some envy on your part.
I originally looked into the Sager 8890, but decided against it for a variety of reasons. It appears its availability and screen options change with the direction of the wind blowing that day. Neither Sager nor any of its retailers would give me a firm answer on what flavor screen I would get, and for awhile the laptop had halted production because of it.
My Alienware has had a decent share of problems, but compared to what I've read in the Sager forums, it is a glistening example of perfection.
The final reason I bailed on Sager was the laptops just plainly look like cheap crap. Contrary to many Sager owners opinions, it IS ok to have a computer that looks good. To some people that matters or we'd all be driving crappy Japanese econoboxes with Ferrari engines.
I am not dogging on Sager, but for me, they simply do not offer a machine I would be eager to own.
