Do you think I should buy it also they tell me that since Im so picky on fan noise they said the chembook 2056 is virtually quiet with no fan noise even when doing moderate tasks. Is this true
The 2056 IS NOT the same thing. It is a Compal CL56, the 3970's competitor. Look in the review section for Drawmonster's review of the 3970 vs. CL56. Performance wise they are very similar. However, the Sager's built quality is better (from the reviews I read). Also, many have returned the CL56 in exchange for the 3970 because of the superior screen quality and clarity. Also, the 3970 is wide screen while the CL56 is not.
If you don't care about wide screen and sharp/crisp display and want to save some money, the CL56 is for you. However, since I stare at the screen about 99% of the time, the best visual quality was the most important to me. So I bought the 3970.
I highly suggest that you check out Drawmonster's review.
