    I'm leaning towards the Sager. Better card (9800M GT vs 9700M GT), better looks (elegant Sager vs. boy-racer Asus), DDR3 memory........but spec'd out the way I want it, it's $2300.

    The Asus is cheaper at around $1700. :wavey:

    My limit's $2500 and hopefully I'll have my current laptop sold (someone's interested -- $800) so that should ease the budget burn a little bit. This'll probably be the last laptop I buy for the next 2 to 3 years.

    As interesting as the G50 with the two hard drives is, I think I'm just gonna bite the bullet and go with the Sager. :)

    I'm not gonna get the Asus, then have a wave of buyer's remorse wash over me because I didn't get what I really wanted. :)
