I posted the following on another thread, but didn't get many comments, this thread seems to hit exactly what I need:
There are so many informed ppl here I'd like to ask a question. I'm a huge Gamer, but I also am a business man. I have a crappy lappy that my work provides, but it doesn't come near acceptable for my work needs, let alone any gaming. I'll be traveling everyday to and from the office with my lappy and also be having meetings with clients with the laptop out.
I've been fighting for the last 2 weeks about portability and power. I want a beast like the sager 9860(although i want the x800 in it) but i'm not sure if that would work all that well with what I do. I'm not all that concerned about the weight, my work laptop prolly weighs as much as the sager.. heh. but I am concerned about size, and perception.
What do you guys think? would a 9860 be to menacing to put on a desk in front of clients? Does the thing give you any negative impressions if you saw someone using it in a meeting?
Even though i'd hunger for the power, would it be wiser for me to go with a smaller lappy like the pretty Uniwill, or something similar.
-price isn't a huge issue here. i just would like some input on perceptions vs performance.
-Thank you for all your opinions-
