    looking to buy a new laptop but im not really satisfied with what newegg has to offer. i'd prefer to do a custom-ish build but i really dont want to spend 5,000 on it either

    ive looked into xoticpc.com

    anything else?

    Just go to slickdeals.net and wait for a good deal on dell laptops. Most, of those places who make "custom" laptops are usually way over priced.

    BTW i've had my Dell laptop for close to years and it still kicks ass. Alot of dell's can be modded out relatively cheaply so keep that in mind.
    See ya in another life, brother.

    For the love of all that is good and holy DO NOT get a Dell or Gateway. Get an Acer or even lenovo or something. Try TigerDirect sign up for their newsletter and they send you all kinds of deals on Laptops also Microcenter and even compUSA send me stuff about laptop deals at least twice a week

    the short version is Dell's SUCK for the long version wait for clocker to reply. They have lots of propriatary stuff in there and their drivers suck monkey nuts.

    word. toshiba's driver support is zero to none. Awful, truly awful. Add to this many BIOS bugs, and there you have it.

    What exactly don't you like about the hinges? I see no problem with this machine, I did a quick review search and This guy seems to think it's great some quotes for those too lazy to read it.

    Sager and Clevo Clevo is perhaps not widely known, but their products are re-branded and sold by many known boutique brands such as Sager, VoodooPC, Falcon Northwest, Eurocom, Kobalt, and others
    A laptop's build quality is one of the most important things to me. I'm happy to say that the NP2096 is a very solid laptop, much more so than my Dell Inspiron 600m. It feels very secure and sturdy. The appearance of the laptop is pretty plain, though as some users have already pointed out -- this thing looks a lot better in person than it does in pictures.

    thanks for that

    the review seems pretty solid. i did read it a few days ago when i first saw the machine on xoticpc.com. the rest of the reviews i was able to find were pretty decent as welll.

    i am probably going to press that paypal button tomorrow for this laptop!
