Pros and Cons of Sager NP8358F2
30 People bought it so far and gave an average rating of 4.3 out of 5.
Can I easily upgrade the ram and hard drive?
f you remove the 2 screws for the battery then remove all the other screws on the bottom you can use the battery area to grab a hold and slowly/carefully pry off the bottom plastic from the main part (it split where the metal and the plastic meet. Once I added my SSD drive I just popped everything back in place and put the screws back in. No damage and everything was super easy to put back into place. It took more force to pop the the plastic on the rear of the laptop. If you haven’t done this before I recommend you do some research as you don’t want to crack any of the plastic.
Yes, but it is better to edit on a external 4K display.
In conclusion, while most other manufacturers are obsessed with solder components, making them non-upgradeable, limiting performance and thermals to make them thinner, lighter, and have longer battery life, Sager and Clevo focuses on what users like me care about, performance, thermals, upgradability, ports, did I mention this laptop even has an HDD/SSD indicator light?
If you find these things exciting, I heartily recommend that you take a look at this and other Sager models.
