I had put part of this post in the - is centrino laptops powerful enough, and thought I would post again. My questions regard laptop brands besides dell-hp-sony. I can take 15 emini russell trades a day with no fear - but this laptop selection is freaking me out. I have never had or used a laptop, and the only computers I have ever owned were dells; but all the recent discussion regarding their service degredation makes me very hesitant to buy a laptop from them (have been considering an 8600). When I was searching the web I happened on to the following website - http://www.powernotebooks.com/, and am wanting to know any trader's opinions or experiences with sager and/or power pro laptops. Thanks (and this absolutely is not one of those bait posts - i know nothing about this company or these products).
