I am somewhat annoyed to hear this, though it is understandable from what I've read overall about the 16" screens. When mine arrived I didn't know that the 16" SXGAs had any problems, mine was no different than any of the other LCDs I've dealt with. Only later when I joined the forums did I learn about the difficulties other owners had.
I still have no regrets, even though I heard that Sager had motherboard upgrade options for those with older models in the same case (again an unknown to me until recently). I planned my purchase with the idea that this system will last long enough for a 'next notebook' so new that a new case would be needed anyway (which could actually happen in the next three years).
My only concern now is how support will pan out for this system in future. As it stands I'll be buying a few things so I have my options open.
