I know of several Dell PC and laptop owners that have had nothing but trouble... The goes for HP, Sony, toshiba, as well as others... There is a reason that laptops have outsold desktops in the past few months...

I find it kind of hard to believe that my Inspirion 8500 (never needed to use the warranty at all) has been working flawlessly for 2.5 years now while all these people with there Sagers are reporting all these problems….
I’ll blame poor sample size for now, as the population having no problems hasn't chimed in yet...
I would hate to have a better experience with a Dell computer vs. a Sager.
I have read much about the cracked hinges awhile ago.... If Sager hasn't figured this one out by now I seriously doubt the overall quality.

got a 8790 i ordered mid-june 04. sent it back just before 1 yr was up for minor but madddd annoying artifacting. got mobo replaced. been awesome since. no hdd problems (x2 raid 0). construction is overall great, no complaints.
recommended a few 5690s and 8790s to my friends back when i bought mine, and they have had no problems at all.
