The single most reason why I didnt go for the 8890 is because its like 2" thick and a hefty 12(ish) lbs. I've read sometime on these boards that typing is uncomfortable because of the thickness. The 8890 sacrifices looks for desktop-like performance, its real beatuy lies within its performance. I feel that the 8890 is a 'plain' standard looking laptop; if you walk into a room with one person with an 8890 and another with an Area 51m, I guarantee more people would be in awe of the sleek looks of the Area 51m!! Its look is unique, unlike the 'standard' looking 8890. I respect the performance of the 8890, but I feel that Clevo could have designed a better looking and less bulky of a machine.
P.S. This poll is biased and in an unlevel playingfield because it IS IN THE SAGER portion OF THE FORUMS (not everyone checks EVERY forum). If this was in the ALIENWARE forum or even in the GENERAL NOTEBOOK forum then the results would be very different. So far, Alienware has held up pretty well amongst the Sager zealots in this forum!!
