My 2012 Alienware M17x R4 is still going strong in 2019, after being hauled in over 50 flights across Europe, Asia and North America. The external case is scratched from all the luggage suitcases its been crammed in & thrown around on flights, but the internals & screen, are solid. Also never had to service anything on it (I think a key popped off and i just pushed it back in, once, maybe in 2015?). Dell makes really solid laptops.

Linus I find your lack of ESD awareness disturbing. What message are we sending to the kids?

The last model had probs with the heat? And only 2usb ports!
Two of the reasons i didnt buy it. 3usb ports, well we getting somewhere.
I cant wait for some tests to see how it is on a longer gaming sessions!
May worth it for me this time. Also upgradeable, sweet.

Upgradable graphics isn't that hard, all you need is a PCIe connector and power source. Migrate all the power to a single connector, and the PCIe connector can be made relatively small. It's not rocket science.
Is Dell/Alienware planning on truely keeping this upgradable though? If I buy one at release, will it have components for it in a couple years, 5 years, maybe even a decade later if the chassis survives that long? There's no point in hyping upgradability if the product is killed within a few years, or if a new model is released every year. Are they going to have a solution for older components, like maybe a cheap case you can throw everything into to have as a backup desktop, or something?
What about the case of the laptop itself, if the chassis does last 10+ years, is it planned to have different I/O plates for future standards of I/O? Say USB type C becomes the bottom line but also has a generation or two of successors, would I have to get an all new chassis for this, or could I just swap out an I/O plate with a new motherboard that has the newer I/O? Again, there's no point to the upgradable hype if the idea doesn't work after a few years.

Hey! Did they mention when they’d release the 240 Hz panel? You say “later this year”, did they share a specific month? Quarter? FHD @ 144 Hz for this beast is kind of lackluster. QHD @ 144 or 240 Hz should have been offered since now... like on the m15 and m17. I’m on the fence for this sole reason and would spend 4.5K immediately were it not for this.

This is unbelievable. Imagine 10 years into the future, we'll have 128GB worth of ram, 1PB in terms of SSD M.2 storage, a core i11 (if they exist) and dual RTX 2080TI's with 20GB on each card... as an available option for those who love overkill, all in a laptop! Made super "easy", by your friends at Alienware! Have you guys seen their overkill pc towers? :D

I Bought an Alienware back in the 00s I think 2006 the top of the range ALX with the custom spray job. Amazing Laptop, however after just 4 years there was an issue with the main motherboard which couldnt be replaced or fixed.... £2500 laptop turned into an expensive drinks mat.... I would never buy another ever again...

I can already foresee a huge increase in security for CES 2020, as they need them to keep an eye on linus to not disassemble all the hardware that is showcased.
"I wasn´t supposed to disassemble that? Ok, well here have this bag of screws and those pieces, i may or may not have dropped some of them."

what is it missing?
up-gradable screen,
up-gradable keyboard,
up-gradable motherboard.
Having worked at HP, DELL and now IBM, I can confidently say that this is clearly possible at the same or smaller form factor; but they won't do it yet unless they have to, to survive.

this laptop is the laptop that many people wanted including me, it sucks that you can't upgrade your laptop nowadays because of the sacrifices that have been made for the thinner standards. I just don't want my graphics card and CPU soldered on to my motherboard.

now THAT is one sexy laptop =) I bought a alienware laptop 6-ish years ago, and it was the best laptop I've had (but also ridiculously expensive xD). My biggest gripe with it was the lack of upgrade-ability, so when I felt the need to upgrade, I went back to a desktop PC. This laptop is probably not for me, as I don't "game on the go" much anymore, and it probably would cost me more than a whole years worth of disposable income xD
