Sager or Chembook?

Originally I was looking for a small, light notebook for travel use, and also planning on building a new desktop for Half Life 2. Now I'm thinking I might be better off just buying a smaller sized desktop replacement. After looking through a lot of the big name guys, I found a couple of systems from Sager and Chembook that look promising. The Sager model I'm interested in is the 3790, and the Chembook 2056. The Sager looks cooler, but the Chembooks seem to have way more battery life. Anyone used either of these brands? Kind of wondering what the viewing angle on the screens are like.

Or should I just stick with a desktop for gaming and a small light cheap notebook for other stuff?

Been reading that Great forum actually. After reading more there, I'm starting to think the models I was looking at might not have quite the gaming oomph I'd want, and the bit 17" monsters don't have the battery life for a plane trip, even though I think I could live with the weight. So I've been looking at ultralight notebooks now too. Heh.

Ended up getting a Dell 700m from Ebay. Not as good a deal as the $750 coupon I missed, but a lot cheaper than the same config from Dell. There are actually quite a few 700m's up on Ebay atm.

$1100 with shipping for a 700m, 512 megs ram, 40 gig HD, 8 cell battery.
