I have been looking at the m11x with the i5, a xps 15 with the low end i7high end i5

I want an intel processor and either an i5 or a i7, nothing else
Atleast 4gb ddr3
Would like a backlit keyboard

I have also been looking at various msi and asus laptops.

I have a desktop of extreme power so I do not need a desktop replacement. I just need something that can be used in the classroom, long trips and for mobile gaming.

That is honestly the best one I have seen so far, I was just hoping for something with a higher graphic benchmark. I am going to keep the thread open for a few more days to see if I can get any other ideas. Thanks for the reply cloudy

The NP8130 sold by Sager is a Clevo model ... these days you can buy from Clevo distributors directly though it seems the distributors are no longer permitted to under price Sager and other vendors that Clevo OEM's. You will see proces usually matching to the penny on base price but can often save on customizations buying direct.

However, you are never gonna see 3+ hour batter life no matter what you are doing. For that you'd need an Optimus equipped machine.

Unfortunately the 540m is not up to the performance of the 460M and the 560M was showcased in January but a retail drop is not expected for a bit yet.
