That notebook is based on the Uniwill design. There are many companies selling it under their brand. ibuypower, cybernotebooks, GamePc, and ABS. I purchased the ABS equivalent the Mayhem G3. Click on my link in my sig for my review. It performed well but ran hot so i returned it.
Performance wise the the Sager has higher benches than the Battalion. I picked the Battalion because i want something smaller and more portable than the Sager 4750.
There are people in the general notebook forum that have already purchased the notebook and are enjoying it do a search in the general notebook section. For them performance is worth more than the heat.
In general though the reviews for the Uniwill have been mixed, with some being kept and others returned. I believe though that the Battalion aka Uniwill is on back order from ibuypower because it is very poppular for price/performance.
Don't worry the company and computer is legit.
