I've just found out I'm heading to the Gulf for a six month deployment, so my initial plans to wait for the arrival of the 8790 and it dissection by the enthusiasts here have been put on hold. I'm too embarrassed to even list the specs on the the laptop I've been using for over three years and need to get something I can use for up to 12 months before handing it over to my wife who mainly needs a desktop replacement. I'm down to the Gateway 550XL vs. the Sager 5680. I realize these are two very different machines. I need some feedback on users feelings about the wide angle screen, how quiet is the 5680, does it get very hot, and any other points that might help me decide. I've got to order ASAP so I can get my machine and troubleshoot it before I have to leave. I'd really appreciate the insight of Sager users.
