Thanks guys, it's such a slick machine. the native resolution takes a bit to get used to but it's so crisp. I'm at 1600x 1200 , 120 refresh, and while viewing webpages it's pretty small and some pages aren't optimized to be viewed at that resolution.
When I decrease the resolution, it's blurry and big and ...well pretty ugly.
Definitely do not have anything near the vents. My palm PDA was next to it and nearly melted from the heat. I'm exagerating, but I got a plastic screen protector sticker and it was bubling up from the heat.
The wireless access point is recognized but I can't get a secure connection with the CD that comes with it.
This laptop is definitely for someone who doesn't like brand names with a nice instruction booklet. Even though it comes with a manual, it totally helped for me to go on sagerforums and read up on everyone else's problems. I prayed that I wouldn't get a bung pixel and I wasn't too irritated that the sager logo on the front was starting to peal off. It's all minor when you get this beast partitioned and linux and XP ready.
The mouse is pretty slick but takes a bit to get used to. I'm used to the mouses that come with the Dell, logitechs too but much slimmer. I'm looking to get a belkin keyboard controler. Couldn't load Mechwarrior 4 either. But it's all good.
The Audio DJ was a bit confusing at first and didn't work, but the second try it did and the sound isn't bad for laptop speakers.
Well that's about it so far on day 2! Gonna bring it to work to challenge my bosses to some Quake 3! Thanks Adam at PC Torque for keeping me on top of the status of this machine.
Anyone considering to buy a Sager 5660, feel free to contact me. Most definitely GET A PAINT JOB EVEN THOUGH IT TAKES A BIT LONGER.
