    Hi guys,

    I had have send back my Acer Predator Triton 900 because of gpu defect after two days of using.
    I received back my money and i will get AW Area 51-M today.

    I was so suprised about 4K panel in Acer and i would like to ask you if is some possibility to change FullHD display in Alienware for any 4K?

    Has somebody experience?

    I know it is just 60Hz but i love it.
    I played RDR2 in 4K and awsome experience.

    Much more better then on any 144Hz FullHD.

    Thank you

    Not possible yet, the panel does not exist yet as far as I am aware.

    There is a 4k thin bezel option on the Razer's so maybe Alienware will get it soon but there have been no announcements as far as I am aware.

    If you really want 4k you will need to look into an external display option. Even once it does become available ( If ), it's unknown if these ones would be upgradable to the 4k panel. The panel is not easy to remove from what we have seen. You might be stuck trying to replace the whole lid and panel assembly in one piece. Someone on Reddit did get it the LCD out of the lid of their wrecked a51m, but it wasn't exactly easy.

    There was supposed to be a 4K panel for the Area-51m. I am guessing we might see it during CES 2020.

    Yo a heads up. They are selling RTX 2080 kit which was around $1300 and now dropped down to $1000.(Which is very tempting) This was the started around Dec 1st. This is a hint to me that they might release an "r2" or new 4k display option along with a super RTX 2080 which has been spotted for Mobile.

    People have been waiting for ages including me when I had the 51m. It has passed ces 2020, I have a feeling they have scrapped that idea and will release a 51m r2 instead which comes with the option.

    Dell has a track record of saying things and not delivering on them, isn’t that right @Mr. Fox @Papusan

    But for real. They are prob waiting on the rtx 3000 series(supposed to be 50% better and have not to high power consumption aka less heat) and finalize there 12-core redux of the model

    AW Umar Khan has already confirmed no 9900KS support for Worlds most upgradable Gaming laptop. I expect same will happen for 2666/XMP support. And display options is still in the blue.

    LMAO. The worlds most upgradable gaming laptop. To think I was still saving up to get this laptop this summer! What a joke. I am glad I didn’t buy it a jumped on the hype as hearing there is no support for the next gen 9900KS is laughable! All that hype and then this news! I bet the the 3000 series cards won’t be supported either!

    50% is from a land of dreams :D
    It will be around 20% and the same consumption/heat
