I know any answer you might give will be total speculation, but do you think whatever Clevo (and therefore Sager) comes out with will use the 5797 chassis, the 9262 chassis, or something completely new? Any thoughts as to how long after the release of the Calpella-Clarksfield sets I'd be able to buy this supposed Sager?
How much do you think such a system will cost? Right now I can get a maxed 5797 for $3,300.
I think it's very doubtful that you could swap a motherboard with the Calpella chipset into an existing chassis, if that's what you're asking.
I would expect models to be available around July - pretty close to launch.
And notebook prices have been slowly but steadily decreasing over the last few years, so I would expect a similar price point compared to existing models.
