Hello folks, recently I've been searching around for a good laptop, and it's come down to this:

The Acer Ferrari 4000 with an AMD Turion64 2GHz/ATI Mobility X700
-or-
The Sager NP3880 with a Pentium M 1.7GHz/nVidia Go 6600

All of the other components would pretty much be the same, except the Acer has a sweet red/black paint scheme with a carbon fiber LCD lid. So pretty much which one will give me better performance in both games and multi-tasking, and which brand can I trust more? Thanks in advance! :)

I'm extremely brand loyal to Clevo, so normally I'd tell you to take the Sager over everything else, however:

The Acer has a 64-bit chip which means you can dump Windows XP 64 on it.

The Acer's x700 will be noticably faster then the vanilla 6600 mobile.

Unless you upgrade the Pentium M to the 1.8Ghz model I'm pretty sure that the Turion will outrun it. As for the paint job and the carbon fiber lid, that's all fluff.


Take the Acer.
