I made sure we kept the standard color for those that would rather save the $.
Thanks for the offer on the java display. I'm trying to think of the best layout for it but still simple and maybe you have some good ideas you can throw at me. People comment all the time that they're happy with how simple, clean, and functional the site is. I've been suprised not to hear many say it needs more graphics.
Yeah, I know .. $200+ can buy some nice peripherals and other PC related items. But heck, you look at the laptop every time you use it and over the life of the machine, it really doesn't seem like it's that big of an expense.
Definitely something I will get when/if I buy a Sager from you all.
Regardless -- as someone else said, it's gonna be a little thorn in the side of those folks at Alienware. About the only thing they have to distinguish themselves in the laptop world is their multicolored laptop cases. That advantage has been pretty much thrown out the window now.
I saw no advantage in the first place :-) It was PCTorque all the way, lol. I like them! Glad to see how it was all done... No effect on those who want no color change, and the price is below expected :-)
I wonder how many people will buy it though. Other than the people on these forums, no one really knows about this and may still have to resort to alienware. To advertise would cost money, so I think only by word of mouth will PCTorque's custom painting spread. Then there will be people who don't know that the 5660 and 51-m are the same model, and may still choose alienware, AND then the fact that alienware charges 61 bucks extra for a paint job. Because they charge more overall, I suppose that's why they charge so "little" but all of these might hinder PCTorque's new dominance.
I would really appreciate more pictures from other angles and with the laptop closed. Having a hard time judging exactly what they will look like. And a standard one for comparison would be cool. I'm looking forward to the day when an 8886 can be custom painted, I'm hoping to buy the first one.
I think that the choice of color is a very good option But (there's allays a "but") 10% of the price for the color is FOR ME too expensive.
The price could eventually be less if there is a lot of ask. (is it realy english what i said ?!!)
