Hi guys. someone looking to buy a sager laptop here. probably going to buy from mucro asia due to all the bad reviews for sgcubehub here. i'm looking at getting either np8150, 8170, or 8130. Any suggestions? I'll b bringing the laptop overseas to australia coming feb for my studies. Don't really need a very good laptop for my studies since my course is not IT-based, but I do 3d animation and graphic work moderately.

it's the first time i'm getting a sager laptop and i'm really quite stunned at all the options available for upgrade lols. any suggestions regarding what to upgrade, n what not to upgrade, would be much appreciated too.

Trying not to ask too much guys hahas but i still have one thing to ask. Is the AC adapter a 2-pin or 3-pin since it's a US laptop?

actually from what i read from your needs, its not essential to buy a sager
would adviced u actually to buy something that is more portable....
at a weight of about 3kg, do u really wan to drag it ard at sch?
Its a beast and its more of a desktop replacement instead of a portable laptop. Getting it due to replacing a desktop at my coming new house. Kinda small space, so resort to using laptop instead of a desktop.
Do consider getting other more portable and lightweight laptop with dedicated graphic card.

2cent thot.

going to call mucro asia to ask roughly ETA is when...

waseh... now forum also got "LIKE" function....
Ordered on 14th Dec. I was told that it arrives on 27th.
But only managed to get it today delivered to my house on 29th as i wasnt able to pick up his call as i was sleeping when he called me on 28th.

I ordered not from sgcube.
After much consideration and research, i ordered from mucro-asia as its cheaper then sgcube.

Which tip are you using? Also, any issues when gaming? Wonder if the 95W can really sustain the power needed for the gfx card when gaming

I don't think so, the default adapter for NP8130 is 120W and the default adapter for NP8150 & NP8170 is 180W.

120W adapter is not sufficient to carry GTX580M and 6990m.

Angry horrible customer service by cubehub

Good choice to not buy from cubehub, especially during this period of time.

i placed my order on October 21, and till now still have not received it despite opting 4 the express build.

At first the sales manager said it was due to problems in shipping, that i should receive it next week, but after a month of waiting I received an email saying that the delay is coz sager ran out of the 580m, asking me if I want 2 wait for the stock 2 reach sager or change 2 the 6990m so sager will ship out my order immediately.

I agreed 2 the swap only 2 receive an email saying that I had 2 queue 4 the whole process again which is absolute crap.

After waiting so long, I finally received an email at the start of last week saying that if I do not receive my laptop this week, I will be given a full refund.

And then no news after that. Been spamming emails to them with no reply.

Gonna have 2 call them on Monday 2 demand my refund.

It's not due to Sager. If it's due to Sager, I couldn't get my NP8170 with GTX580M within 1 week after making the payment.
