I have read and heard about Sager laptops ever since I started writing content for this website a few years ago. Back then, I was getting few Sager notebook shopping related questions but now the enquiries have increased which meant that it was time to dig deep and see what gives.
What do we know about Sager laptops in a nutshell?
The company has been around since 1985 and specializes in portable computers only. Although it may appear that the notebooks are only sold at Sager’s website, a quick search engine search reveals that there are quite a few Sager laptops merchants and parts sellers.
Sager laptops are backed with some rather strong claims and promises:
“When you buy a Sager PC, you buy confidence. Every component of a Sager PC is checked, then rechecked, in a state-of-the-art testing facility to ensure that your portable PC will perform to the highest quality standards. Sager offers the industry's strongest warranties and guarantees, including a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee, lifetime technical support, and a 72-hour repair-turnaround guarantee.”
That sounds very nice but does not have much credibility in my books. The best way to figure out if they’re for real with those claims would be to ask their current customers, the owners of Sager laptops.
I searched around and did not find many reviews. Is it because customers are so happy that they have nothing to beef about or is it because the clientele is so small that no one writes any reviews as a consequence?
I looked at the prices of Sager laptops and was puzzled. On the company’s website, they seem to be pretty similar to the industry’s norm yet the company boasts about its low prices. On the other hand, a few merchants that were selling some Sager laptops seemed to be advertising them for so cheap! That is so strange and when I figure out what’s going on, I will keep everyone posted!
Another thing that puzzle me about Sager laptops is their invisibility. A few techies and friends that I speak to regularly on computer related issues have never heard of Sager notebooks! Is it because it’s not a global brand like the Toshiba, Apple, Dell and so on? Is there anything that I should know about that I have completely missed?
All these answered questions about Sager laptops only lead to one conclusion: something is definitely sketchy with the information that is found about Sager and for that mere reason, I would think twice about buying any of their products.
If you are Sager laptop computer owner and have some experience with the brand, its product line and its customer support, please, please, please, drop me a line and let me know what you think of them.
I return, I will share all the feedback with everyone and update this article accordingly. You can reach me at mail##@##laptopadvisor.com (remove the #s). Thanks!
