I have a sager, alienware, and a xps
Hello, I own 3 laptops one is a sager 8887u series I got on 3/19/03 I paid 3025.00 no tax. the specs are p4 3.06, 16.1 screen, 1024 pc 2700 ram, ati 9600 128mb, 60gb hdd,dvd-rw, win xp pro, 3yr warranty. this computer was superfast at the the time but cant really upgrade stuff and I broke the screen. The company was good, didnt have any problems with the computer at all. got the system shipped very fast. if I had a question on how to do something tech support was right there. loved this computer. only complaints is I could not upgrade the video.
So then I found alienware the area 51m I got it on 10-23-03 the new one alright I paid 3602.00 no tax. The specs are p4 3.2, 1024 pc 2700, 16.1 conspiracy blue, 60gb 7200, nvidia 5600fxgo 128mb, 2x dvd-rw, xp pro, 3yr warranty, this computer is awsome it looks great plays flawlesly, But I wanted to put in dual channel memory to get the extra boost it does make a difference, so I called to make sure it wont void the warranty and they said it does not support dual channel, Im like no way, what kind of computer is this. they said the new one supports it and they could swap out the mother board and stuff, so when I talked to sales they said it was like 1000.00 to do the upgrade now this is 5/02/04 so I said and for around 3000.00 I get a new computer right and they said yes, so ok now im in the process of ordering a new alienware, we get to the memory i say I want pc3200 dual channel, then the guy laughs it doesnt support it
so Im like well then other then the new video card in the laptop whats the difference between the one I have now and the new one he said will it does cost more to get the 16.1 screen now, Im like thats all he said ya pretty much. so I said c-ya.
Ok now I was at the mall and saw dell said hey lets see what they got, well the guy said what do you do, I said play games, he showed me the inspiron xps, ok not the hotest machine ive seen but tell me about it, he told me about it and the warranty, here is all I remeber him saying, upgradable graphics, extreme edition,dual channel, complete care, I was sold right then and there, here is what I got ordered on 05/05/04 I paid 3834.75, I got p4 3.4 EE, 15.4 awsome screen, 512 pc3200 dual memory, ati 9700 128mb cool, 60gb 7200 rpm, 4x dvd+r, 1350 wireless, bluetooth,all there installed crap, the skullz cover and win xp pro, 3 yr warranty with complete care. media center with remote. I have to say this machine blows the alienware away, the space ship had to cum down to pick up the pieces. this computer is way faster then the sager and alienware, but I know the new sagers are on the same level but not alienware.
