    Wow, and I thought with a thick case like that everything can be maintained well. So what can Alienware offer when it has bad maintainability, soldered cpu and soldered gpu? Less fan noise? I even doubt that with regards on the reviews of previous models...

    What is this with this messed up systems all over the place.

    In US and Canada you can order anything that has been advertised.
    In Europe you cannot chose the AMD graphics card or the 980M whatsoever
    In some asian countries you cannot chose FHD with 980M.

    Why is this a better marketing?
    I don't understand.

    I live in Europe and want 4K screen with a 980M, but I can't.

    ok guys needed a opinion please. Looking at the 15 with either the full hd or qhd what do you guys think on that also since Im getting the ga will the 970m be enough when traveling. Second if I get the basic 1tb hdd can I just switch it out to a ssd cause I hate spinning drives and none of the options come without a spinning drive. Also is there any benefit getting a m2 ssd.

    I went with the 1080p... but thats just me.

    You can either replace the 1tb drive with a 2.5" SSD, or you can grab a m.2 and use that. The 15 has 2 spots for m.2 drives.

    Also...

    The Amplifier is for sale on Amazon for $265 right now. I ordered mine a few days ago and just got notification I'll have it Monday, even though it says OOS.

    About the 4K monitor. I want to give it a shot. I have seen 4K monitors and TV's if you run 4K content, the difference is really there, and it's impressive imho. So I want to take the 4K monitor. Becuase there are games such as diablo 3 I play that aren't the most graphically demanding games which I will be able to play on 4K. And Since the pixels are so small that you cannot notice, and 4K being a perfectly 4x 1080p size, there is also no scaling artifacts. So I'm convinced that 1080p scaling will still look good on a 4K monitor. Also might buy a graphics amplifier later on, so a few years later when there is more to enjoy in 4K I will be ready.

    But if you don't know 4K then go 1st to a multimedia shop check it out, if it REALLY something you want, then go for it, otherwise don't get it.
    It makes things a little more difficult such as:
    - More power consumption
    - Bad scaling of windows UI elements (otherwise too small) though will probably be fixed in the future.
    - More expensive.
    - Not many 4K video content available at the moment, might change in the near future with the recent introduction of UHD Alliance.

    About your GPU. the 970M is More then enough for a 1080p gaming. (doesn't matter if you are running 1080p on 4K monitor). So that is a good option. Especially if you are going to buy a graphics amplifier immediately.

    Now about SSD. The benefits from M.2 SSD's are, the ports are typically more faster then Sata, and most importantly they are significantly smaller. It's a good thing if you want to combine a 2,5 inch Hard Drive as large storage for things such as videos music etc. While all programs and the OS is installed on the SSD.

    but if one SSD space is enough for you go with that of course, because like you said, you will have nothing mechanical in your laptop and SSD's don't brake as easily as hard drives.

    I'm glad Dell's Precision line is still upgradeable. I love my m6800.
