The 8890 I ordered is actually pretty modest in its capacities, 2.4ghz HT, 512 ddr 60gb HD, the reason for this being that I need this more of as an in-between computer that anything else.
the laptop I currently own has done me right since I've owned it.. but it just wasn't made for combat
Eventually the keys melted off the keyboard and the components have started to die. <sighs>
The good news is that its still under warranty. The bad news is that to get its shipped and repaired will take like 4 months just to do properly. So I decided a new laptop was in order. Sager's 8890 is like gods gift to the media freak in me. Once I return from the war I'll upgrade anything that needs upgrading and ditch my desktop. The Laptop will prolly go to by little bro who is starting college and only has a Dual P2 450 MHZ that I built him.
for the curious my desktop is the following
2X monitors running 1150xsomethingerother w/capacity fer 1 more and a tv out
Dual gforce4mx 64MB cards
1 60GB HD
1 40GB HD
1 3port Firewire Card
SB Audigy Platinum
500W PS in case that supports 6 HDs, 5 5.25 devices, 1 3.5 devices, 4 fans and sits on casters.
8x DVD ROM
24X CD Bruner
1 Scuzzy card w/ 4x scuzzy burner (reads and burns everything)
1 Sticker that sez "Tequilla-Have you hugged your toilet today?"
