Default looking at Sager np9280

so i was looking at a Sager np9280 laptop for a mobile gaming rig, and for 2500$ it looks like a good deal. Now i know the battery life on the thing is about a hour, and i know its heavy (owner of a XPS M1710), but its easier then hauling a 30LB rig around when im away.

Would you guys recommend any other good gaming laptops for hopefully under 3000 (max at 3500)?

Im definitely looking for something that will last as long as my XPS has (almost 3 years), and can really push the grid.

Sager's pretty much the only way to go, for a laptop that high end. I picked up the one in my sig for $1350 CDN but it's only available from BB in the US.

Eurocom will pricematch most of the US Sager retailers pretty well and they are a Canadian company so you might want to fire them an email with a config from an american reseller and see what they can do for you.

I spent a few hours on an Acer 8935g... I actually loved the layout and size.... if only it came in the high end chips/memory... decently priced too.
