New Sager Laptop Has Two GTX 1080
Do you know Sager? Most of you will say “no” because it is not as popular as other gaming brands. However, it is widely known for making price-performance laptops. In the past, we have seen their “economic” computers with 970M for about $1300. This time, they are not trying to make something cheap. They are playing big.
Sager NP9873 is one of the most powerful gaming laptops. It is not the most powerful one though. This title goes to Acer’s laptop with 21-inch curved display and dual 1080. But don’t get me wrong. Except few things ( such as the stupidly big curved screen ), NP9873 provides most of the features that you will get from Acer Predator 21X. For example, like the 21X, it also comes with dual GTX 1080 aiming to provide the best gaming experience.
The computer is also powerful in terms of CPU. There is Intel Core i7 6700K. Even though 6700K is a monster, still, 6700K is a member of the previous series, Skylake. Frankly speaking, I would love to see Kaby Lake in a computer which is being advertised as the most powerful laptop. Not Skylake.
In terms of storage, you will get 1 TB HDD ( with 7200 rpm ) and 256 GB SSD. Yes, it comes with SSD as well but I don’t want to see HDD on a computer that costs more than $4000. It is 2016 and SSDs are cheap. Why Sager? Why did you put HDD on your flagship computer? Anyway, the RAM is more understandable though. You get 32 GB 2400 MHZ DDR4 RAM.
You will play your games on its 17.3-inch 120Hz 1080p Matte screen. Again, I am greatly disappointed. Even our phones use at least 2K resolution, and why we cannot see 4K or even 2K on an uber expensive gaming laptop.
Also, don’t expect NP9873 to be thin and light. You should actually compare this computer with PS4 or Xbox One in terms of sizes; not with other laptops.
Are you ready for the price? It costs $4000.
