Well, I've had my 5660 since it was 'the hot new thing' and the cracking hinge problem is so bad now that I will have to do the metal hinge plate reinforcement (ordered the parts and printed the instructions and will probably fix it next weekend.) Already had to take it all apart to get to the hinges, loosen them slightly and epoxy the lid top and bottom half. At the moment it is holding sorta, and I am using it now. But I keep thinking of getting a new laptop and am again looking at Sager. Specifically a maxed out 5760. But I guess I am worried about the build quality of the case. As I wait for the Nforce 7950 to become available, I thought I would ask if anyone here has heard of any Sagers other than the 56xx series with problems like the case cracking around the hinge. Was this just a 5600 series issue? I must say, other than that problem this laptop has been great and that is why I am again considering Sager. But I would hate to go through the case issue again.
