Im noob with computer building so hope you guys can help me
choose or give me better options. What Im thinking is, if i go for the Clevo i
will get a better CPU with more rooms to upgrade in the future. With the Asus i
will spend less money and get full build. Just that i dont know if the Asus has
enough power to handle the works.

Happy New Year!

Short future?

All the gamer laptops I've encountered like this rarely get to 4 years. Take the one with the 3 or 4 year warranty.

Those are both gaming machines and with

What your doing is move dependent on the graphics processor then the CPU and both have the same graphic cards. An Express card is a slot that replace the PC card slots a few years back. It's used for additional cards such as wireless cards, air cards for (Sprint, At&t and verizon). You can also get extra USB ports on an express card. Express card technology.

Both systems are upgradeable as you can pick your configuartion. I think you going overkill with that Sager configuration. If Sager allowed the lower end processor they would basically be the same machines.

Do you have a copy of Windows for the Sager? You may have problems registering Windows if you have an OEM version on Windows. If you have the retail version you will probably have better luck registering. You can buy a Sager with the OS installed. The advantage is they will just install the OEM version without alot of crapware which you will get with the Asus.

If you choose the the Sager i would get a second drive because 120 gb will fill fast.

Dell M6600

I have an old dvd windows 7, i thought i would use it instead of buying preinstalled.
After asking around ppl keep telling me these are game computers, and Nvidia quadro is what i need for the things im doing. Since Quadro are so expensive the only way i can afford one is to buy refurbished computer. Like this one:
Quadro 4000m
17.3" FHD screen
should i go for it? Im so close to click the pay button.
