  • Almost Done...

    I'm almost done deciding which laptop to order and have a few lingering questions that will help me "seal the deal"... Please help me out here...

    I have decided on the NP9262 w/ Intel Core 2 quad processor Q6700, single 8800GTX (will upgrade to SLI down the road), and 4 Gigs or RAM.

    My questions:

    1) Due to staying under the wife directed price cap, I am forced to order a single 100 gig HD. Will I be able to utilize the RAID 0, 1, 5 options later on if i purchase more HD's?

    2) Are there any new and improved Sager laptops due out soon that I may want to hold off and order? I'd hate to order this thing and a few weeks later a new and improved version be released that i didn't know about... (Keep in mind my cap is US $3300.00)

    3) This looks to be about the best system I can buy for $3300.00 - I'm looking for a top of the line system now and upgradability for the future..

    Sorry for the long post and I'll appreciate any input!

    great choice!! u should be able to upgrade to RAID later. just remember that for RAID 0 you will have to have a 2nd hdd...exactly as the primary u have chosen. unlike a lot of notebooks, the NP9262 has SO many non-integrated parts so changes down the road are possible. ie: cpu, gpu...etc. laterz!!
