Summery and Inquiry
Greate review Adam, but please let me mention some things it hold me some of it where I coudn't get a clear answears from the reviews :
1- SATA vs PATA HD
, you said that RAid 0 with SATA is faster, but if its one drive, SATA has high throughput and lower RPM and the PATA is the oposite so which one is faster , and is there a SATA drive with 7200RPM, and what is tha brand of the HD used in this notebook.
2- DDR2 RAM brand
, Tom told me its brand is Apacer can i choose a corsair insted, and would that affect the price .. How much
3- WUXGA vs WSXGA+ LCD ... Gloss
y, why its not so glossy as the 8790 as we see in its reviews, Also is it worth to wait for the WUXGA is it glossy as 8790, what is the binifits from such scrern is it just the higher resolution and how much the price difference will be.
4- P4 EXtream and 64Bit Edition
, No Extreme edition on SPU options, dose it mean that it dosn't support it, Also P4 64bit CPU is a nice issue mentioned in the reviews here but we didn't get a certain answear about it from Adam or Luke
, become 12 cel and its still can hold for 1 hour, and the more strange thing that they insist mounting it by some screws insted of easy mounting way. I think most users for such thing will prefere to unmount the battery most of the time to reduce the weight and to extend its life time, or it shoud be mounted all the time even i use the AC power supply ??!
6- Video IN
... dose it have a vedio IN, any info about capturing cabapilites.
, is not included in current orders,dose it and will be a available as separate upgrade in December. If that right, so I have to wait again, cause i'm In Cairo,Egypt. and I will pay more shipping to get it separatly
8- Floppy Drive
, Its Not optional, that is strange, hope it become an optional item to save some moeny for more important items.
9- Alumenum Carrying case
, Is there a hope to add an to the case options, Specially ZERO HALLIBURTON
10- Aleinware Area-51m 7700
, any soon review about it.
As i'm new in assembled notebooks, could anybody tell me what is the realiton between Clevo, Sager, PCtourk who is the manufacture and the distributer where i found many other brands (Voodoo, Xotic and Prostar) have the exact chape and configuraiont of the Sager 9860, so how that come are all of them for one notebooke and each one just put his name, and how the Sager and clevo site itself don't have the 9860 although it has the Notebook name.
Finally, To sweet my review I invite all sager lovers to check Tomshardware review - who didn't check it yet - about the 9860 in http://www.tomshardware.com/mobile/2...e_6800-20.html
Thanks for all friends here for this nice place and for your apreciated help.
