Sorry to keep u guys waiting, have been around the forums much.
As far as weight goes, it is a little heavy, but for the power inside, i think it is pretty light. I mean I had a 40 pound desktop, plus a 40 pound 19" crt. That was a pain to carry around. Now I have more power than that in a 10 pound package.
I use the case that came with it to carry it around. It works ok, but having a little more padding and sapce would be nice.
Overall, I absolutely love this thing
, it may not be the most compact notebook, but just the fact that it nearly beats my freinds alienware desktop that cost about the same but has 10 times the bulk is awesome.
I should mention, I used this thing to take notes in my summer class and my prof let me use it on the open book final. I finished it first becuase I could just use word and do a "find" to look for key words. Not to mention it is nice to use it on break for a little gaming.
Also, I was surprized at how many people see it and ask what kind of notebook it is. No one has ever heard of sager before. They gawk at the screen and the sheer power of the unit. They are amazed when I pull up UT2k4 and play it at max settings and max rez smoothly over a wireless connection.
I have also been able to hook it up to a 50" tv and use it play games, movies and music. It is like i have a portable entertainment center!
I would be happy to answer any other questions you guys have. Please ask away!
