  • Sager longevity?

    Well, Im looking at purchasing a new laptop again. Most likely a 5791/2.

    I bought my first Sager 9860 about 10 days after it was released not knowing of the potential heat issue that eventually caused the mobo and video card to fail. I didnt purchase a warranty because it wasnt even an option from where I bought it from. Mine lasted 2 years before it died on me last fall. I looked at getting it repaired last winter and spending $400 to replace broken parts or $900 to upgrade to the next video card wasnt worth it for a laptop that has heat issues that are due to the processor/video card. Most likely it would have gotten fixed, then it would have had the same thing happen a year down the road.

    Now my question is, has Sager gotten any better with the longevity of their laptops? I dont want to be messing around with it dying because of a heat issue, even with a 3 year warranty.

    Also, those that have, or have worked with the 57XX series of laptops, have you had any major problems that seem to be consistent with that series?

    I am looking at getting the 8800 video card version, but if it is going to cause major heat issues, I will stay away, take a performance hit, and get the one with the 8700 in it. Any thoughts on this?

    That is unfortunate that you had problems with a sager notebook Sager makes very dependable long lasting notebooks, also XoticPC offers excellent warranties and has 24/7 domestic technical support

    You can purchase the 8800 is either the 5792 or the 9262 laptops found on our website
