Have you even used the 8887 with Maya? It runs like a dream for me, and most of my files are between 60-100 mb in size. Yes, FireGL would be great, but that's only icing on a cake that's already wonderful
edit -- as far as resolution, one way to make room for working in those programs is to hide menus you don't need (when you're not animating, why have the timeline visible??). I don't use Rhino, but in Maya everything can be accessed from the hotbox -- including hiding menus very quickly.
|2. Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. Is that what it's going to come with? The nice apps such as Alias Sketchbook and Microsoft OneNote requires the TPC Ed.|
|1. Pressure sensitivity. There's no specific mention of this. Will it have? All TPC's with the exception of the Compaq-HP have 256 levels of pressure sensitivity; all use Wacom digitizer screen overlay. Great for drawing.|

I'm a little curious about the price of the 8890 and 5680... I have a budget of a max with shipping and warranty and all of $2500. I am hoping 1gig memory and a 60gig or higher 5400rpm or higher drive. DVD read is a must too. So nothing extravagent, just the basics ... basically
I want the better one... better screen, and what not. I still dont know the real key differences between the two ;(.

Oh wow! These are all great!
Does anyone have any idea what the 4760 might cost? It's perfect for me. I'd love the wide screen, I'd like to have a number pad, and I don't need the extra graphic oomph of the 88XX or 56XX series (I don't play computer games). I'll be using it to edit music using Finale, and I'll be doing some midi sequencing, and probably watching some DVDs.
My budget is limited by my credit limit, so I need to keep it in the neighborhood of $2000. I was literally about to get the 8882 from Powernotebooks.com, but I'd rather have the widescreen.
Can anyone even guess? I've been waiting a really long time to get a laptop, I guess I can wait two more weeks to find out if this will fit into my price range, and then buy what I can afford. But it's frustrating, I was all ready to buy, and then I see this! I'm glad I saw it though because I think I'd rather have the widescreen, but that doesn't make the extra wait any easier.

I have a few questions on upgrades... I understand that they might not even happen, or that they won't happen for a while, but supposing that they did:
1. How long does it typically take to upgrade, and why? (Like, based on previous upgrades how long does it take, and also do you upgrade it or does Sager upgrade it what?)
2. What components will be upgraded at the least? (i.e., if you want the cheapest upgrade, can you just do the video card and mother board?)
3. If you do just upgrade the video card and motherboard, will any components that would remain in your computer bring down the speed of the whole computer?
